Pump up those tires and lube the chain, National Bike to Work Week starts Monday.
Just one of several events happening during National Bike Month, the League of American Bicyclists encourages everyone who can to bike to work May 12-16, or at least on Bike to Work Day, May 16.
More than half of the U.S. population lives within five miles of their workplace, making bicycling a feasible and fun way to get to work. With increased interest in healthy, sustainable and economic transportation options, it’s not surprising that, from 2000 to 2011, the number of bicycle commuters in the U.S. grew by more than 47 percent.
And if you’re in NYC, you’re invited to join the Bike Home From Work Party on Friday!
