Considering bike commuting? Watch "Spokes People" a Bike-umentary (VIDEO)

Thinking of commuting by bike? Want fitter, happier, more productive employees who take less time off work? Looking to improve the quality of life for your family?

"Spokes People" is the perfect documentary to watch for this reason, and a great video to share with your employees, coworkers, friends, or family members who are considering taking the leap to commute by bicycle.

Full of commuting facts, statistics and real stories from individuals and families who bike for transportation, even those who haven't mounted a bike in years might find themselves inspired to leave the car at home and bike the drive. 

If Americans biked to work once a week, the effect would be comparable to taking 48 million vehicles off the road daily.

  1. Lovely family.
    Anyway, you said "most dangerous cities to ride a bicycle", where is that?

  2. This video is very entertaining and educating too. I don't necessarily ride a bike on my way to work but I do like the idea of having an exercise. I better buy some motorbike accessories in Perth and try their tips soon. Thanks a lot!

  3. This is one great advocacy. It helps to reduce environmental pollution as well as promote healthier physique. Back home, it is quite impossible to reach work through biking. So what we usually does is to patronize the offers of calgary used car dealers. This way, we do not encourage making of new cars since there is no actual place to dump and recycle used cars, right?
