“Climate change is just one on a long list of reasons why you should swap out your four wheels for two. Commuting to work or school by bike instead of car results in a significant reduction of your carbon footprint on a daily basis. From production, to use and maintenance, every step in the life of this form of transit reaches the same conclusion. If you want an easy way to help protect our climate, hop on your bike and go for a ride.” – Gunther Melander, C4C Administrative Coordinator
