May is Bike Month and as far as we're concerned, the more we know about bikes, the more we love them. A few fun facts about the most energy efficient vehicle ever created:
- Anywhere from 6 to 20 bikes can park in a single car parking space
- Bike trips replacing car trips displace over 238 million gallons of gasoline per year (nearly $1 billion worth at current prices)
- Bicycles use 2% as much energy as cars per passenger-kilometer, and cost less than 3% as much to purchase.
- Ohio Fun Fact: Unicycling is a mandatory subject at St. Helen's School in Newbury, Ohio.
