Walking and bicycling

OK, so here are a few more reasons to start walking or bicycling:

*  If just one out of every 10 adults started a regular walking program, the U.S. could save $5.6 billion in health care costs — enough to pay the college tuition of more than 1 million students.

* Bicycling and walking projects create 11-14 jobs per $1 million spent, compared to just 7 jobs created per $1 million spent on highway projects.

Find out more about the “Bicycling and Walking 2012 Benchmark Report” at the Alliance for Biking and Walking.
