Today I went to work on my recumbent and registered it on a special website; “Fietsen scoort“. Last year I cycled 3200 km on my commute. This month only 200 kilometers, but the year has only just begun.
The website is only in Dutch. But maybe it is good for others on this globe to copy the idea ! Every employer’s association can subscribe. When his employee also subscribes and keeps up to date the kilometers they commute to work on their bicycle, the website calculates the saved petrol, CO2-emission, etc,etc. As a bonus the employer’s association will pay one Eurocent for every kilometer that is registered by his employees. That money will be spent for some nice development projects, like for instance i-ce .
When I look at my “personal page” on the website I see this (translated in english):
I hope that the idea is clear and I feel substitute-shame that those Dutch “environment-minded” guys don’t have an english version of the site.
