Not only is biking healthy for humans and the planet, it will also keep those pockets bulging. According to a reports from League of American Bicyclist, Sierra Club, and National Council of La Raza U.S. cyclist save a whopping $4.6 billion a year on any transportation cost.
Forty percent of all trips are made within two miles of home. Analysis by the Sierra Club shows that if American drivers were to make just one four-mile round trip each week with a bicycle instead of a car, they would save nearly 2 billion gallons of gas. At $4 per gallon, total savings would be $7.3 billion a year.
