Bicycle Commuting Statistics Worth Celebrating

Bicycle Commuter on Electric Bike

A 250 Series Electric Bike Kit, 500 Series high power E-Bike Kit, or an electric bike from Leeds makes commuting to work by bike within reach. Here are some great statistics according to The League of American Bicyclists that will make you hang your car keys back on the wall:

  • Since 2000, bike commuting has grown by 62%
  • There were 882,198 bike commuters in 2013
  • Bicycle commuting burns an average of 540 calories per hour
  • The average person loses 13 lbs in the first year of commuting by bike
  • A daily 4-mile bike commute will save about 66 gallons of fuel per year
  • Bicycling just 20 miles per week reduces women’s risk of heart rate disease by 50%
  • If the average person biked to work once every two weeks instead of driving, we could prevent the pollution of close to one billion gallons of gasoline from entering the atmosphere every year
