Physical and mental health can be improved through exercise, and biking is an inexpensive and simple option. Whether you’re riding for fun, fitness or with family, or taking essential trips to work or to shop, you are part of a bigger movement for safer streets, connected communities, a healthier planet and happier people.
Start small by riding around the block or going to the store. Then step it up by biking to work one or two days a week. A great time to start is during National Bike to Work Day, which typically takes place in May with various events throughout the United States.
Almost every country has a Bike to Work Week. Research programs in your area to get started. Some employers even offer perks to those who participate. Now’s the time to start!
