The Carbon Value of Cycling

Reduction of Carbon Footprints /Greenhouse Gas Emissions

one bicycle can be used for 10 hrs a day

one bicycle can have Total 40 ride trips of 15 min a day

one bicycle can have average of 3 KM in each ride trip

one bicycle can with 40 ride trips a day can have total 120 Km a day

one bicycle can be used 365 days in a year

So one bicycle can ride total 43800 Km in one year with 40 ride trips of 15 min covering 3 Km in each ride trip totaling 120 Km a day

Total Greenhouse Emissions in using a small car for 43800 Km in a year is 16 Tons of Co2

Total KM with 100 cycles in a year would be 4380000KM / 2721605.822 Miles . Total Greenhouse Emissions reduction in 4380000 KM / 2721605.822 Miles with bicycle is 1600 tons

In first phase of PBS- 37 I bike stations with Total 150 bicycles is planned which could reduce 2400 tons of CO2 per year as per the estimate.
