It's time to shift our perspective and start treating the bicycle as a valuable tool rather than just a "TOY". Bicycles are not just meant for leisurely rides or recreation; they serve as a sustainable mode of transportation that can reduce our carbon footprint and promote a healthier lifestyle. Let's embrace the bicycle as a practical tool for commuting, running errands, and exploring our surroundings. By incorporating cycling into our daily lives, we can contribute to a greener environment and enjoy the numerous benefits it offers.

The current state of American cities is heavily reliant on cars, resulting in traffic congestion, air pollution, and the wasting of valuable land on parking lots.


However, with the growing threats of climate change and the need to reduce carbon emissions, it is time to reconsider our dependence on cars. Riding a bike won’t solve the climate crisis alone, but its potential to reduce carbon emissions, improve public health and foster sustainable communities are all big steps towards a cleaner future. 


Visualizing life without cars may seem daunting, but it presents an opportunity to reimagine our cities and create a more sustainable future. American cities need to find ways to encourage alternative modes of transportation, such as biking, walking, and public transit, and invest in infrastructure that supports these options.


By doing so, we can reduce traffic congestion, improve air quality, and reclaim valuable land that is currently being used for parking. It is time for American cities to prioritize people over cars and work towards a future that is both sustainable and equitable.

"Biking is a simple solution to climate change, congestion and the massive health crisis we have in this nation.” 

Our society has long been focused on treating diseases, rather than preventing them. However, it's time we change our approach. We need to start taking action on various aspects of our lives that can contribute to better health. This includes healthy air, healthy water, healthy food and healthy ways of getting around.


BIKE SATURDAYS is more than just riding a bike, or Saturdays - its a movement that aims to promote healthier living by encouraging people to cycle, walk or use public transportation. It's not just more lip servce about the benefits of riding a bike, we take our message to the streets. LITERALLY!

"It is clear that increasing active transportation, and in particular cycling, will bring about significant health benefits through increased physical activity, reduced air pollution, and increased resistance to communicable disease help in the fight against climate change"

Nobody likes sitting in traffic. Commuting is one of the least pleasant things we do. But, we created it. We are the traffic we hate.  it’s not just an annoying time waster — it’s also a major public health issue. We live in a world of commuters. Because of our love of cars and big suburban houses, 75% of Americans drive to work. Long distances. The average American travels 16 miles each way to their office and 220 million spend at least 1.5 hours a day in their cars.
