Road Bike Vs. Electric Car

Is it greener to drive an electric car to work or, is it greener to ride your bike? They put it to the test in our latest commuter challenge.

Bikes are thought by most to be one of the – if not the – greenest ways to get around. But, as electric cars become more commonplace, could they overtake cycling based on green credentials?

They thought we should look into this, so we set up another commuting challenge. Starting 20km away from our offices, we challenged Dan – driving a BMW i3 – and Simon – riding his trusty Canyon Aeroad – to commute in the greenest way possible.
