Car vs Bike Carbon Calculator

In hundreds of cities all around the globe, people are beginning to swap their cars for bikes to pedal their way through the urban jungle. And for good reason! Once you leave your car in the garage and hop on two wheels, your life is guaranteed to improve. Biking keeps you in shape, doesn't emit air pollutants, and you saves time and money. Also, you will no longer get frustrated when you are stuck in a traffic jam!

You've heard that all before, no doubt. But did you ever wonder what would be the effect of you swapping the car for a bike for, let's say, five years? How much longer would you live? How much CO₂ would you not emit? How much money would stay in your bank account?

This Car vs. Bike Calculator will answer all of these burning questions. You won't have to guess anymore; in just a few seconds, you can determine the effect cycling would have on your life - and convert the hours spent on a bike into trees or additional hours of life.

Have fun using the calculator, and remember: don't drive, bike! 🚴
