Calculator Tells You How Much You Can Save By Biking To Work

Riding a bike isn’t an option for every commuter, but for those within a reasonable range, high gas prices and the approaching summer mean there’s no better time than now to consider pounding the bike pedals rather than the gas pedal.

Kiplinger offers a calculator that tells you how much you can save by biking rather than driving to work, or any other relatively nearby and safe-to-get-to place you regularly visit.

If you tackle your commute in a bike helmet, what logistical tips do you have for others? If you drive rather than bike, what holds you back from trying the alternative?
