When and Where

Head shot Picture

7.01 Assess the innovation that bicycling has had on natural resource utilization for the short term and long term.  

How can riding a bike make a difference for natural resource utilization and human impact on the environment?

Wheel – circular object that is fixed to an axle on a vehicle

Natural resource – mineral, land, forest or water that can be used for economic gain

Impact – influence of one person or object on another

I just found an excellent video from the NY Times about bicycling in Denmark, which I will see if I can add to the Destination Denmark website.  Angie

The electric bicycle and bicycles in general are having a positive effect on the urban population of Denmark. There is less pollution and a healthier lifestyle.
