Bike to Work Week: Pedaling Against Pollution

May 14, 2007

With gasoline at over three dollars a gallon, the annual Bike to Work Week is coming at a handy time. North Dakotans are being encouraged to leave their car in the garage and pedal a bike to work. Wayde Schafer with the Dacotah Chapter of the Sierra Club says it's easy to figure out much you're saving on fuel, and it helps cut carbon emissions that cause global warming.

“I think everybody can do little things that add up to fighting global warming. Certainly using your bike a couple of times instead of driving your car is something we can all do.”

He reports the average car on the average commute puts out about 166 pounds of CO2 each week, and if you biked to work for a half year that would keep 4,000 pounds of C)2 out of the atmosphere.

Schafer believes biking is a realistic option for many North Dakotans, and it's a win-win situation.

“If you're not driving your car for a day, that's money in your pocket, so riding a bike to work just makes sense from an economic, health and a global warming point of view.”
