Great little article the Guardian yesterday - CO2 for cycling - depends of course, on what you eat. Here's the impact of cycling a mile, powered by different food

Bananas 65g CO2e

Cereals with milk: 90g CO2e 

Bacon: 200g CO2e

Cheeseburgers: 260g CO2e

Air-freighted asparagus: 2800g CO2e


Fuelling on asparagus gives you a higher environmental impact than driving a Hummer. That doesn't make the Humvee good - just avoid green spears that have flown. So, surprise, surprise, when you're best off heading out on the road, load up on bananas and carbo from cereal.


The 'e' part of CO2e is for 'equivalent' - taking into account the other greenhouse gases such as methane that are released in food production.
