It's Bike to Work Week!

Let's show some people that it's possible, fun, and the RIGHT thing to do!

THIS WEEK - May 12th thru the 16th... and beyond! Gas isn't cheap -=- make it stick!

TOP-3 REASONS TO BIKE TO WORK (courtesy of the League of American Bicyclists)
1.Stay fit
Bicycle commuting allows you to include your workout in your daily schedule
Riding a bike instead of your car sitting in traffic is less stressful
Staying in better shape will decrease your chances of getting sick
2. Avoid traffic delays
Off-road trails, bike lanes and wide curb lanes allow you to ride past traffic
Bike commuting takes less time when you account for car parking and traffic
Longer rides can result in less traffic and more enjoyment of your commute
3. Save money
Maintenance costs for your automobile will decrease, as will your gas bill
You will save money on parking (and tickets)
You won't have to have a membership to a gym to workout

Reason #4 (and maybe the most important): It's fun!
