One World Two Wheels - A Trek Commitment

(from Trek USA...ride a bike , its the greenest thing you can do to help the earth and your community's health.)

A Trek Commitment
Trek Dealers are working to get people to ride their bikes and make a more bike friendly world, one mile at a time.
We all know the world has some problems; gas is expensive and cars pollute, the roads are congested and humans are getting bigger.
And not in a good way.
Luckily, there is a solution to these problems. A solution that burns calories, not gas. It doesn't waste fuel sitting in traffic. Something that could even bring communities closer together.
The solution is the bicycle.
With 40% of non-work related car trips being taken being two miles or less, what would happen if more people took the short trips on their bike?
What if more communities had a "Safe Routes to Schools" plan so kids could ride to school safely?
What would the world be like with more bicycle friendly communities?Imagine arriving at work fresh instead of frazzled. Parking within feet of the building!
Your kids getting exercise to and from school. Better still, commuting by bike IS exercising! And there are no carbon emissions from burning calories.We all can ride and we have only one planet.
Trek and Trek dealers challenge you to join us in making the world a more bike friendly place.
You can start by riding your bike. It's the greenest thing you can do to help the earth.
on yer bike !,
and please be Visible, Predictable and Legal.
