Portland State University is located in one of the most bicycle friendly cities in the world. Recently, I have been thinking about commuting by bike because I have learned how much it can benefit not only myself but also the environment. You gain money in your wallet, and lose inches off your waistline. If I’m willing to ride a bike instead of taking a car, it would mean that there would be one less car on the road therefore, less carbon dioxide released into the atmosphere, and we will end up a bit more healthier. Would you do the same to save your planet and your wallet?
