Five reasons to support cycling, even if you don’t ride a bike

IMG_3773If you find yourself reading about bikes often, you’ve probably already seen this post from People for Bikes. The post is all about how to persuade people who don’t ride a bike to support more bicycle-friendly cities. Here are the reasons they give:

1. Bicycling infrastructure creates more room on the road for your car.

2. New bicycling infrastructure creates jobs.

3. Well-designed bicycling routes make the road safer for everyone.

4. Encouraging physical activity creatives more productive communities.

5. Cycling infrastructure is less expensive.
