Bicycle Pool Service as a Linkage to Local Nature Activities and Healthier Lifestyles
Joakim Haak


People are spending less time outdoors as the years pass. We have somehow become used to staying indoors and this has become a problem across all generations today. This is and will become a big health issue, both on a mental and physical level.

Then, how could new transportation services, such as public bicycle pools create links to local forests, and to activities that you can do in these spaces? “Spending at least 120 minutes a week in nature is associated with good health and wellbeing”.*

Bicycle pool services have the opportunity to promote and help people adopt healthier lifestyles and create better bonds with places like nature sanctuaries and their ecosystems. Bicycles are good for our physical health and help us get closer to forests and nature, more than any other transportation service.
