Convenient. Walking is limited by distance, and buses follow fixed routes and schedules. A bicycle can take you wherever you want to go, whenever you want.
Efficient. Peddling an easy 10 mph on city streets and trails, you can often cover short distances as quickly as you could drive in a car.
Healthy. Riding a bicycle is gentle exercise that's good for your heart and easy on your joints. It's also a great way to improve and maintain your balance.
Fun. Feeling that easy, fluid motion and the breeze on your face is pure joy!
Popular. Perhaps you've noticed - Bellingham and Whatcom County residents use their bicycles for transportation in much greater numbers than other places in Washington.
