Bike to Work Week is this May 17-21st!
Bike to Work Week begins this Monday, May 17 and carries through to Bike to Work Day on Friday, May 21. Are you ready to ride and encourage others to do the same? “National Bike Month is the country’s opportunity to ride the momentum of Secretary of Transportation Ray LaHood’s support,” said League President Andy Clarke. “Show the nation that bike commuting can and will positively affect your community.”
If this is your first time riding to work, no problem! We have several tips on our web Site, Google Maps has bicycling directions (even mobile ones), and there are events for you to participate in around the country. You’ll quickly discover that biking to work is fun and a great way to clear your head to and from work – in addition to trimming your waistline, saving money on gas and lessening your carbon footprint. Who knows? You might even get to work faster with biking than you ever did by train or car. Check out NBC’s Today Show’s experiment to see which way is quicker in New York City.
Happy Bike to Work Week!
