Bike riding is a beneficial activity for our health, planet, and economies. In order to increase its use, each party (building owners, city administrations, and government) should fulfill certain responsibilities. LEED LT Bicycle Facilities Credit category clearly lays out what building projects should do to achieve an overall “bike-friendly” building. Riding a bike is a fun activity that improves our physical and mental well-being. It is convenient for getting around locally, also environmentally friendly. The benefits of biking to work rather than driving or using public transport are numerous. There has been a significant rise in the number of people bikes to work in the last decade.
