On October 18th, commuter bikes manufacturer Linus Bike responds to an article published by TheWest.com.au which expresses the value of cycling for communities and the environment.
According to TheWest.com.au, although cyclists themselves naturally get the benefits of cycling, their mode of transportation has benefits for the community and the environment. The article explains that cyclists can avoid high fuel costs and expensive maintenance while remaining fit. In addition to these benefits, TheWest.com.au discusses how cycling can help local communities. “Bike riding makes sense for the Government, too, because a healthier community means less pressure on the public hospital system,” TheWest.com.au reports.
TheWest.com.au also reports that more cyclists on the road mean less pollution in the air and is less taxing on local government budgets, “The cost of creating cycle lanes and paths is significantly less than building more roads or providing additional train carriages.” According to TheWest.com.au, building roads costs far more than creating cycling infrastructure like paths for cycling and bike lanes. The article states, “In fact, every dollar spent by governments in improving bicycle infrastructure and encouraging more people on to bikes results in a net cost saving to the economy in areas such as health, environment and transport.”
Linus Bike commends the informative and encouraging article. According to Jason Latty, Sales Manager for the environmentally friendly commuter bikes manufacturer Linus Bike, “Any cyclist can attest to the stress reducing benefits of cycling. Even if you aren’t a cyclist, however, you’ll benefit from the growing popularity of bicycle transportation due to the positive effects cycling has on your community and environment. At Linus Bike, staying environmentally conscious is our mission. We want our customers to know that they are making a difference for the environment and their community.”
