Fuel for Thought

Mind-blowing fact of the day–the bicycle is the most efficient mode of transportation. Period. Like, blows everything else out of the water.

From the Exploratorium, one of the world’s greatest museums: “It takes less energy to bicycle one mile than it takes to walk a mile. In fact, a bicycle can be up to 5 times more efficient than walking. If we compare the amount of calories burned in bicycling to the number of calories an automobile burns, the difference is astounding. One hundred calories can power a cyclist for three miles, but it would only power a car 280 feet (85 meters)!”

Check out this list, then grab a bike instead of the keys to the Prius…
