Americans love their cars.

I live in Detroit and it’s called the Motor City for a reason. We have the Woodward Dream Cruise annually which displays classic and cool cars for miles. People will camp out for hours and tailgate just to watch awesome cars drive up and down Woodward Ave. We also host an amazing auto show where new concept cars are introduced by popular automakers. We Detroiters are constantly using our cars.

However, using your car too much can have a negative impact on the environment and your health.

Did you know that 30+ minutes of biking per day lowers women’s risk of breast cancer? Or how about three hours of biking per week reduces risk of heart disease and stroke by 50%?
