Economic benefits of cycling & walking?

Neat little graphic from our friends at the Australian Bicycle Council.

If anyone can point me to a similar 'snapshot' for walking, that would be great. I guess at a minimum that it would be double that of cycling (based on mode share averages of 4% for walking and 2% for cycling).

Hi Yru, the image in the post is a broken link, but I think this is the image you were referring to.

Thanks Ian - it is.
Hopefully it's fixed now!

Nice graphic to show some interesting statistics.

Cycling is good for your waistline: You can burn a lot of calories while biking, especially when you cycle faster than a leisurely pace, and cycling has been associated with helping to keep weight gain down. And cycling has the added benefit of ramping up your metabolism, even after the ride is over.
