Biking Proponent Urges Cyclists to Switch to 'Zero Emission' Electric Cars
Cycling used to be the most environmentally friendly mode of transportation available, but with recent technological developments, this no longer is the case.
Even though the emissions of riding bikes are small, they are not insignificant. As we cyclists convert carbohydrates into energy to power our legs, we emit CO2. The faster we ride, the higher the emissions. One could think of a cyclist’s nostrils as an exhaust pipe. The mouth forms an auxiliary exhaust, which opens automatically when the emissions exceed the capacity of the primary exhaust.
New technology has brought us a better option. There now are cars with zero emissions (above).
