Swedes Choose Bikes to Save Time

More and more people in Sweden are choosing to take their bike to work. The main reason for this is surprisingly neither health, nor money. According to a poll by Swedish Bicycle association Cykelfrämjandet, what cyclists most want to save by switching their car for their bikes- is time.

According to the poll, health reasons came in second for the cycling Swedes, closely followed by a concern for the environment and for saving money. The trade organisation Swedish Cycling has appointed bike commuting as the lifestyle trend of 2009. Having been a growing trend for a while in the US and several European capitals, cycling is now reaching the same status in Sweden, according to Swedish Cycling.
