By John Ryan, Seven Wonders: Everyday Things for a Healthier Planet:

"The Bicycle: The most energy efficient form of travel ever invented and the world's most popular transport vehicle. Pound for pound, a person on a bicycle expends less energy than any creature or machine covering the same distance. Handy for the one out of four car trips in the United States that are less than a mile." — BeyondPeak.com
