The project cycle for the city of Cantanhede aims to promote the
use of the bicycle is their benefits to the environment, this goes
beyond the issue of reducing emissions from motor vehicles. It
also has the issue of lesser use of land, both for movement on
public roads, as well as for public parks, private houses, with their
space for maneuver, which are also lower.
Another benefit is related to weight: 50 to 100 times lower than
that of a car therefore consumes less metal, rubber and other
materials. The life of a bicycle is greater (mostly uses it to make
no more and few are those who yield to the call for new models),
producing less waste.
The energy consumption to go one kilometer is 50 times lower
(1.100kcal a motor cyclist 22kcal against average). Besides the
best known initiatives to promote the use of the bicycle, is an
example of many leaders, entrepreneurs, professionals. To whom
will work on a bicycle some companies that install and male and
female shower to give the bike.
