How are your New Year’s Resolutions going? Did you choose one that said you would try to live a healthier lifestyle? Or was the environment more your concern? You wanted to try a greener way of living, leave a small carbon footprint, perhaps? How about commuting by bike ad killing two birds (or two resoutions) with one stone?
