If you’re looking for a way to save money and improve your physical fitness, consider riding your bicycle to work. It is efficient, economical, ecological and healthy.
It is estimated that over half of the U.S. population lives within five miles of their workplace. At an average speed of 10-12 mph, you could be to work in 30 minutes and burn about 200 calories. Even better, the more you ride, the faster you get-which burns even more calories and reduces your commute time.
