The Power of the Pedal!

May is a busy month for bicycling! Not only is it National Bike Month, and then within that the start of National Bike to Work Week, here in Modesto, CA, we had the Amgen Tour of California begin stage 2 here today! It makes me tired just thinking of all of that peddling! Bicycling is so good for not just the health of the person riding it, but the health of others as well, as it does not contribute to air pollution. I found this article from bicycle.com on the health benefits of riding, which include: 

Improving your heart; losing fat; preventing cancer; and living longer.

And here is a website on how biking is much better for the environment then driving a car, listing reasons like fuel, batteries and motor oil.

If it is feasible for you to ride to work, or maybe even for errands, anything to let that car sit more, you will thank yourself for your better health, and the planet will thank you too!
