- Bikes on and in cars.
So whenever you go somewhere,why do a lot of people always have to drive there,even if its only 10 miles away,not very eco freindly, or good for the environment.
Perhaps use public transport or ride, its better for the environment, and good to see more bike on the road.Posted 9 years agoneilsonwheelsMember
If I did'nt drive to the mountain then the mountain would not come to me. Just to get from one end of my town to the other requires two buses. This is a four mile trip.! To get to cannock chase would take a logistics team. As for going to wales not a chance. If I did not use the car then I would have to buy a road bike and forget about the rough stuff.Posted 9 years agouplinkMember

How do you know they're only going 10 miles?
Even then, I'm not sure I could manage another 20 miles on top of a typical MTB ride, I'd have to reduce the fun bit to accommodate a boring ride there & back – no thanksPosted 9 years agoFunkyDuncMember
Project – I'm sorry but you just do not care enough for the environment, you should walk the 10 miles to the hills, and then get on on your eco sustainable wooden bike, ride for 10 miles, repair the damage you did to the land, and then walk home again.
Oh ps dont take a shower when you get home… it uses so much water and energy!Posted 9 years agoprojectMember

Why is driving 10 miles to go mountain biking any less "eco-friendly" than driving 10 miles to go kayaking, rock climbing, hang gliding, shopping, or taking the kids to school ?

To do any of the things you mention, you would need some form of transport, eg a bike, and as for taking the kids to school, why cant they walkor cycle, or even join up with a lot of other kids and go by bus,thus reducing the school run ,and the parking mayhem that occurs.Posted 9 years ago
Most hobbies or sports take place at some distance from the participants house.Posted 9 years ago
Unless you are going to leave your hang glider or kayak at the place where you use it, you are going to need a car to transport it.
I guess it depends on whether you see cycling as a hobby that you go somewhere else to do, or a means of transport that you do straight out of your front door.ourmaninthenorthSubscriber

There's a third alternative: riding from your front door to do your hobby somewhere else.
If I go MTBing in the Peaks, I usually just ride out. It's only 15 miles from home, so perfectly doable in an hour on an MTB.Posted 9 years agoDezBSubscriber
The nearest train station to me is 5.1 miles away (I just checked) in the opposite direction to any trails.
Bus? What's that? Oh yeah, those great big things that charge about £10 to go 5 miles!
When I lived nearer the trails I often rode there and back home again, but there's nothing really near enough these days.
My usual lift is in an eco-friendly sunflower oil powered Citreon anyway, so I don't feel too bad about it 🙂Posted 9 years ago
