Know the Advantages of the Bike

With information from: Alexandre Nascimento, Danilo Herek, Edson “Nescau”, Guilherme Caldas, Gustavo Carvalho, Itamar Sawiuk, José Carlos Belotto

Are you still amazed when you hear someone say you use your bicycle as a means of transportation? Can not you imagine pedaling to work, to school, to college?

Well, here are just a few advantages that biking can bring to your life, to other people and to your city, if you try.

– Economy

Yes, riding a bike can save you a lot. To begin with, consider the average annual maintenance cost of a bike is approximately
$100.00.

For those using public transportation: we will use the value of R $ 2.60, current price of the bus ticket, in Curitiba. A person who goes back and forth to work by bus spends $ 5.20 per day. If you work 5 days a week, it’s $ 26.00 per week and $ 104.00 per month.Failing to pay this amount, it is perfectly possible to pay the installment of a good bike and when the payment is finished, the money is left in the budget. Want more? In a year, the economy goes from one thousand reais (it’s R $ 1144, 00, considering 11 months of work and one of vacations, not counting holidays).

For those who use cars: Eliminate fuel costs, parking, car keepers and maintenance if you stop using the car just to go to work some days of the week. If you change your car from time to time by bicycle, also bid farewell to the insurance value, IPVA and the portion of vehicle financing. The values ​​vary a lot from car to car, but you can see how much is left, is not it?

– Time

On trails of up to 8 km / h, the bicycle is faster than any other means of transport. Who affirms it is Alexandre Nascimento, journalist and cyclo-activist, who uses the bicycle as a means of transportation. Every day he travels from home to work in approximately 20 minutes and this time does not change, as it does not depend on traffic or time.

The same goes for you. Of course, that in the first few days, it is normal for you to take a little longer to reach your destination, because you do not have such a high physical conditioning. But, little by little, your performance will improve and you will stabilize the time it takes in the course.

From here onwards, you can calculate how much time you earn in relation to the car or bus route, which varies according to the time and the flow of vehicles. It’s less stress time in jams and more time for your life!

– To Defuse Traffic

You may have heard the famous phrase,”a bicycle is one car less.” That’s great news for the…drivers! Yes! A car less means more space on the street, more parking spaces, less congestion.

The city also wins by reducing noise and less polluting gases emitted by motor vehicles.The gain in air quality, which we all breathe, is enormous.

– Happiness, Health, Quality Of Life

When you start pedaling, you exercise during the time of travel, improve your physical condition, become more willing and happier. In addition to failing to stress in traffic, because your body will release more endorphins, the “happiness hormone.” So, you arrive at work happier! Who says this is not just one or two of the cyclists consulted by Sou + Bike, but all of them. It’s unanimity: pedaling radically improves your mood. So, you will work better and be more productive!

– Travel Without Leaving Your City

On the bike you live a totally different relationship with the city. You see and feel details that are imperceptible when you are in a car or a bus. The journey to your work or place of study turns into a pleasurable ride, more beautiful and pleasant. It’s a new and amazing interaction. If you dare get out of the car, you will love it!

– Become More Human

It may seem odd to cite this advantage of using a bicycle. But it is undeniable the personal and social gain of those who choose the bicycle as a means of transportation.In a world where the car is seen as synonymous with status and power, the bike puts people all on the same level, regardless of social classes. We are all human beings, alike, but on top of the bike this condition becomes much more noticeable.

In addition to this exercise of humility you will be closer to people and will find many opportunities to meet new people and even build great friendships. Just start pedaling to notice the receptivity of other cyclists. Surely you will receive nods and smiles as you cross the streets of the city.
