The Idaho Conservation League had this to say about the benefits of bicycle commuting:
- Biking is really good exercise! It builds muscle and cardiovascular health, and it puts a smile on your face.
- On a bike, you're exposed to nature. Rain and sunshine are part of our natural world; riding can better connect you to our natural and urban landscapes. I especially enjoy viewing morning wildlife activity along the Boise River.
- Bicycles are less expensive than cars and gas!
- Biking takes automobiles off our roads, which reduces air pollution and traffic congestion.
- Using human power to get around town sets a good example for the next generation of Idahoans.
- Bicycling can build relationships with neighbors, coworkers and other folks you meet along the way.

Secretary of Transportation, Ray LaHood, is pushing the idea of a nationwide interstate biking system.
"We’ve put almost all of our resources into roads," LaHood says. "If the commitment when President Eisenhower signed the interstate bill had been to high-speed inner-city rail, we'd be in the same position Europe and Asia are in today."
LaHood is also considering the idea of a nationwide interstate biking system — the two-wheel equivalent of Eisenhower’s highway system.
"We know that 90 percent of the people aren't going to be cycling to work," he says. "But that opportunity and that option and that kind of alternative is something we think people want."
