Bikes and Health: What Can We Learn from Europe? (Infographic)

This is a terrific infographic. I think one of the biggest barriers to riding a bike is the layout of our cities and the poor mass-transit systems that go with them. My work is just too far away to bike. I could bike part of the way, to a bus station, but I would need to take my bike with me (to ride a second leg of the trip) and the buses in my town don’t have any bike rack on the front or back. There is no bike lane or other safe “bike route/road.” Bikers around here run the risk of getting run over. In the winter, snow is not removed from sidewalks, so you can’t ride there. Also, the bus schedule is to restricted that it would be difficult to get to work and back home at regular times. That sort of situation just doesn’t help people become bikers or users of mass transit.
