Will the Real Biofuel Please Stand Up has a post up on the efficiencies of walking and cycling and driving. Interesting data. You can buy stickers there to taunt your neighbors on the efficiency of their H2s.

Ecogeek has analysis:
A little bit of research tells us that riding a light-weight bicycle consumes about 35 calories per mile. Walking consumes about 100 calories per mile and is, of course, considerably slower.

Driving a car ends up consuming 1,800 calories per mile. This sure makes one think twice about biofuel, doesn't it?

Park the car, take a walk.
