Milwaukee Selected for My City Bikes Project
My City Bikes, a public health initiative that encourages cycling through mobile applications for Apple, Android and Windows devices, launched its Milwaukee campaign in May. According to My City Bikes, the average passenger car produces approximately one pound of pollutants per mile.
Swapping a car for a bike just once a week can improve air quality in the community and save about $10 a day per 10-mile round trip commute made by bike. Cycling also improves personal physical health.
Wheel & Sprocket, Wisconsin’s largest bicycle retailer, is collaborating with My City Bikes to provide information regarding beginner-friendly roads, commuting by bicycle and mountain biking.
