Pedalling & CO2 Cycling is an energy transformation process where we transform our potential energy into kinetic energy. This kinetic energy promotes more green air to our surroundings. Hence we can reduce our human carbon footprint with every pedal. In a big picture, every pedal counts to stop climate change.

Why cycling, urban design & climate change?
Bicycle riding uses minimal fossil fuels and is a pollution-free mode of transport. Bikes reduce the need to build, service and dispose of cars. Bicycle riding conserves roadway and residential space, thereby providing opportunities for less concrete and more plant life in urban areas.
