Many of these programs seem to have been a stimulus to return to the bike: 49% of users said that participating in bike-sharing programs motivated them to use this mode of transportation for more than a year without training; 6% of users have cycled for the first time; 53% of users have responded that they would have made their last trip by car, taxi or ride-sharing apps if not for the programs.
E-bikes are also taking place. Users of this type of vehicle say they use it to make trekking easier and reduce travel time – 34% of e-bike users say they use the vehicle to change cars at 8km trips per week.
Thus, 20% of users have responded that cycling is the only exercise they do during the week. Richard Dilks, CEO of CoMoUK, says that if cities really want to emit zero carbon emissions, they must confront private ownership of vehicles, and the solution lies in sharing.
Benefits of using bicycles
In addition to the environmental benefits of reducing air pollution and noise pollution, cycling promotes many health benefits.
Cycling 30 minutes a day can strengthen leg muscles, improve and prevent cardiovascular disease, and help prevent and control type 2 diabetes, according to a study published in the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
