National Bike to Work Week

bike to work, cycling

May 14, 2018 – May 18, 2018, is Bike to Work Week!

For National Bike to Work Week, we can combat climate change and improve our health. Simply commuting to work on a bicycle instead of driving can help.

Our carbon emissions are impacting our planet at a frightening rate. Studies have found that 31 percent of U.S.-released carbon dioxide comes from fossil fuels like gasoline and diesel.

So, if you can, consider riding your bike to work this week and once a week hereafter. Experts say that “can reduce your contribution to carbon dioxide global warming by 20 percent annually.” It can also reduce your risk of coronary heart disease and strengthen your immune system.

Hooray for healthy commutes!
