There are three main benefits of cycling
Economic poverty alleviation, whereby increased levels of cycling can lower the cost of mobility for education, work, pleasure, and jobs are created in the bicycle and mobility industry.
Environment and health
Environmental and health/poverty alleviation, resulting in more exercise and cardiovascular health, cleaner air, greater access for poorer communities to food and water security, and on a global level, less need for conflict over oil and scarce non-renewable resources – for with each kilometre travelled by bike instead of car, the amount of CO2 emitted reduces by 90%.
Societal poverty alleviation, for on a bicycle, we move together and thus get to know each other far better as fellow citizens co-inhabiting local environments.
The main benefits of increased levels of cycling can be further categorised into climate, economic, health, social and travel benefits.
