On October 22nd, city bike manufacturer Linus Bike responds to an article from DeseretNews.com regarding the recent trend in California towards cycling in response to soaring gasoline prices.
According to the author, Jason Dearen, “statewide, Californians are increasingly pumping air into the flat tires on their dusty old bikes instead of gas into their tanks. Recent historic spikes in gas prices are expected to stay high, forcing many to look at their gas guzzling minivans and SUVs in a new light.”
In the article Dearen goes on to state, “California's major cities have been preparing for this over the past decade, funneling millions of tax dollars and grants into bicycling infrastructure and public transportation projects to make them more attractive options for getting around town.” The article reveals that California’s renowned love affair with automobiles and general dependency on gas-powered transport makes this development especially significant.
China Reevers, a representative of city bike manufacturer Linus Bike, applauds the article by explaining, “Cycling helps the environment by cutting gas emissions, but also helps cut costs for individuals as gas prices continue to rise this year. Combined with the undeniable health benefits of cycling over driving, the movement towards cycling in response to the soaring prices of fuel is exciting for bicyclists and bicycle advocates around the world.”
