Bike to Work Day

May is National Bike Month and on Bike to Work Day, a wide variety of bicycle-related events are organized, with many cities holding major events where thousands of residents participate annually, and are supported by corporate sponsors.  Leading up to Bike to Work Day, national, regional, and local bicycle advocacy groups encourage people to try bicycle commuting as a healthy and safe alternative to driving by providing route information and tips for new bicycle commuters. The American Medical Association has endorsed Bike to Work Day as part of its push to encourage active transportation. The event is supported by many organizations, from local bike shops and restaurants to municipalities and transit authorities. For more infromation go to:
