Riding a Metro Bike is easy and fun. It only takes 30 minutes to start feeling the many benefits of riding. Did you know that you burn approximately 180 calories in a single 30 minute bike trip? Plus, for each 30 minute bike ride that replaces a car trip, you offset approximately 4.275 lb of CO2! The impact of an individual who commits to ride more often can be incredible, and when a community of people choose to bike instead, the results can be astonishing. Since the debut of Metro Bike Share in Los Angeles, riders have burned a cumulative total of 179,857,392 calories and have reduced over 4,271,613 lbs. of carbon emissions*!
