Propel Yourself into a Greener Future 'One Mile at a Time'.
Urban bicycling is a great short-trip alternative to save emissions, increase exercise, and build your familiarity with your neighborhood.
Urban cycling is a common sense form of transportation in urban areas. As a child, I lived on a small farm and dreamed of having a bike -- but the dirt roads and gravel driveways ... and no sidewalks just didn't lend themselves to bicycles. Cities are perfect for bikes -- except for the danger of cars, that is!
Urban cycling is an alternative to work for, plan for, and particiate in. It fits our urban lifestyle preferences for solitary travel, local trips and clean air to breathe!
C.I.C.L.E. (Cyclists Inciting Change thru Live Exchange) is a not-for-profit group, based in Los Angeles that seeks to promote the bicycle as a viable and sustainable transportation choice.
Forty percent of our trips are under 2 miles. These trips present a great opportunity to get on the bike, and make it a car-free outing.
C.I.C.L.E. site www.cicle.org has great resources on urban cycling.
Check out their tips to make biking fun, simple and safe.
