Don't Think You Can Change the World? Think Again.

Did you know that 40% of all car trips occur within 2 miles of the home and that 50% of the working population drives less than 5 miles to work? Or how about the fact that between 1960 and today the average weight of a 6-11 year old has increased 11 pounds?

Sort of scary isn't it?

Now we at Highgear are not trying to use these statistics to scare you. We just want to get you thinking. Think about the small changes you could make to your daily routine (adding a bicycle) that would pay huge dividends in the end.

Riding your bike to work, the store or your neighborhood bike shop just 3 times a week will save you money, slim your wasteline and give you more energy to do the things you love to do.
