Smarty Biky

A little comic/infographic I made for Charlie’s Freewheels Indiegogo campaign to put 50 youth on 50 bikes.

It turns out children who bike or walk to school learn better, as those who get to school actively are much more mentally alert than those who are passively driven to school.

A Danish study of over 20 000 children found that youth mental alertness was advanced by half a school year if they used active transportation to get to school. This is more benefit in mental development than having breakfast or lunch
