A recent census revealed that the average commuter travels 5 miles (8 km) one way to their place of work each day. 79.5% of automobile commuters drive to work every day and spend about 24 minutes doing so.
Did you know that the same distance can be quite easily covered while riding a bicycle and in almost the same amount of time even by a person who is not an avid cyclist? Opting to cycle to work even twice a week can reduce your fuel emissions by 40%. Electric bicycles can also help commuters overcome challenges with their route’s distance, hills or their personal fitness levels.
