Why biking is good for business

The United States business community is finally figuring out why bicycling is actually good for business. In this article from the Guardian newspaper in the U.K. it was reported that there are 4 main reasons why business leaders in America would like to see more European style bicycling with protected bike routes.

1. Protected bike routes increase retail visibility and sales volume per parking space
2. Protected bike routes make real estate more desirable
3. Protected bike routes help companies score talented workers
4. Protected bike routes make workers healthier and more productive

Did you know that there are fewer than 200 miles of protected bike lanes in the entire U.S.?
