Green Your Bicycle: Build or Buy Used
Looking for a bicycle? Consider skipping the big-box sporting-goods store. Instead, visit a used-bike shop, browse pre-owned bikes on Craigslist, or build your own two-wheeler out of recycled parts at a bicycle collective near you. You'll save money, support your local bicycle gurus, and conserve the energy and mineral resources required to manufacture a new bicycle.
And if you have a spare bike, pass it along.
Tip #2: Accessorize Thoughtfully
Tip #3: Learn Bike Maintenance
