Maybe they mean't bike + rider.

 

I know from personal experience that taking the bike uses more of my energy than taking the car - even if I factor the enery spent on working to earn the money to buy the petrol.

 

Long live petrol.

this is a very relaive and vague statement.....

 

did they take into consideration that energy spent to manufacture the bicycle and petrol as well as the energy consumed to manufacture their riding gear?

 

Pointless I say <_<

Pointless I say dry.gif

 

Surely there is more energy in constructing a motor car vs a bicycle and then also remember that if you are driving a car you will also be wearing clothes so this should offset the cycling kit you are wearing.

Dunno about you but I know my kit is at least double the price of the clothes I wear...... R1000+ bib, R500 jersey, R2500 shoes whistling.gif

Nope...my kit costs way less than that, yet has many a thousand km of riding.

 

Some of my best wearing kit has also been sponsored kit :)

 

Money aside, we are talking about the energy required to manufacture and bring the goods to market. Most of my kit is ex. Velotex and its made on ct...can't say the same for my gen clothes.
