Photo of the Week Pedal PowerRiding a bike to the shoreline, instead of driving a car, sounds like an eco-friendly way to get some fresh air.

This made me wonder how many bicycles there were in the world compared to cars. According to Worldometer, 108,799,200 bicycles are produced annually compared to 51,971,328 cars. Both numbers were surprising, but it was nice to see more bicycles than cars.

Thank you, CU photographer marissakozak, for submitting your photo this week. Check out other photos of flowers and animals in marissakozak’s My Gallery.
