Did you know? The transportation sector accounts for about 40% of California’s greenhouse gas emissions (more details: https://bikemonterey.org/climate-change-why-speak-up-for-cycling-at-cop28-and-elsewhere.html). Bicycling helps reduce the environmental impact of transportation while improving public health and strengthening communities.
Caring for the earth—including taking action on climate change!—is among the multiple benefits of bicycling mentioned by people in Voices of People Who Bike, Part I. We appreciate everyone who bikes to get about, whenever they are able, e.g., the people below.
