Did you know that the bicycle is the most energy efficient transportation mode? It is 3 times more efficient than walking, 5 times more efficient than using the train and 15 to 20 times more efficient than driving a car.

The bicycle is the most efficient vehicle
I caught this post a couple weeks ago on TreeHugger. For me, this is a bit of preaching to the choir, I know, but I simply can't resist. The original post came from Transport & Mobility Leuven in Belgium. I don't know anything about them, so I have no idea how much credibility to attribute to them, but (again), this is a matter of faith for me. :-)
