One person on a bike has a much smaller carbon footprint than the same person in a car! Motorcycling is both a popular leisure activity and, for some people, the main means of getting around.

With a comparatively small carbon footprint, motorcycling is a more sustainable mode of transport than motoring. However, motorcycling inevitably raises concerns about safety and this must be properly taken into account.
