Green, greener, greenest
No means of transportation is greener than a bicycle. For the production of bicycles, relatively little energy and raw materials are needed and most of the parts can be recycled well. That doesn’t mean there isn’t any space for improvement.
For example, when possible we still prefer to fix broken tubes rather than replacing them. Bicycle workshops are throwing away tens of kilo’s of used bicycle tubes each year. Replacing a tube is easier and quicker than patching it, but that doesn’t mean it’s obligatory. We only use high-quality tubes, which have advantages in use but are also more durable.
Bicycles, especially chains, require oil or wax for lubrication and protection. Unfortunately many of those oils are not biodegradable (even though the label might say so) and may even contain poisonous substances such as PFOA/PTFE (teflon). Since 2020 we are switching to 100% biodegradable oil from a small UK company called Green Oil. After all, every drop you put on the chain, will drain down with the ground water. In general, we use chemicals such as degreasers very sparingly.
