National Bike to Work Day: May 14, 2015

Ok, Ok, I know.

Every day is bike to work day. But every year May is Bike Month and this year May 11-15 is Bike-to-Work week. But isn’t it nice to have one day/week/month when we pay particular attention to the many benefits of cycling and encourage more people to give biking a try. Here’s a little video comparing commute options.

Bike to Work Day was started back in 1956 by the League of American Bicyclists. The American Medical Association has endorsed Bike to Work Day as part of its push to encourage active transportation, i.e.human powered.

Maybe someday we will be like Copenhagen where 55% of its citizens commute to work by bicycle.
