With the cost of gas rising and the promise of warmer weather, now is the perfect time to think of alternate ways of getting around. Here are a few suggestions on how to
reduce your carbon-footprint while simultaneously improving your health.
On sunny days, you can leave your car in the garage, grab your bike and pedal your way to work. Finding the best route to the office is simple, you just mount a Garmin Edge 705 or Edge 800 cycling GPS on your bike and go. By choosing your bicycle over your car, you can avoid rush hour traffic and complete your daily workout.
If bicycling isn't your thing, Garmin offers new environmentally conscious vehicle units. Incorporating the revolutionary ecoRoute
feature, these units output vital information straight from under the hood to your GPS. ecoRoute offers a fuel economy monitor, mileage reports and tips on how to save fuel and money. It is compatible with nuvi models 1250 or
higher and vehicles manufactured after 1996 in the United States or 1998 in Canada.
To get your blood pumping during those weekend
errands, bring along a Garmin Forerunner for the brisk walk or jog to the store. The Forerunner 405Cx GPS calculates the number of calories burned and monitors your heart rate. If you like competition, pit yourself against a Virtual Partner on the Forerunner 305 GPS.
This summer you can challenge
yourself or your friends by setting a goal and working towards it.
Whether weight-loss or a better environmental impact is your intent, the
finished product is worth it!
