Let's be honest: Earth Day is BS. We are never going to save the earth in 1 day. And you won't lose 10lbs in 1 day either. We all know it takes a healthier lifestyle to change your body. More than a day of dieting. It also takes more than recycling one bottle to clean up the environment. But what if I told you there is a machine that can change your body AND help the earth at the same time?? And that machine can potentially shorten your commute by hours a day? Are you willing to try it? GET ON A BIKE.

Who wouldn’t want to save money, improve their health, and save the earth?
This Earth Day, ditch the car and pick up your bike. Or go for a walk. And then, when it comes time to go back to work, keep on riding. I’ll see you on the road.
