Friday is Bike To Work day and events are being held around the country to encourage bicycle commuting. Riding your bike to work is a great way to save money on transportation costs and improve your health.
Here are ways you can get involved from the Environmental Protection Agency:
- Pick 5 for the Environment! Biking to work is one of those simple steps you can do to make a difference where you live. When you Pick 5, just select “human powered modes of transportation” under the Air category.
- Submit photos! If you take pictures biking to work, submit a few to the State of the Environment photo project!
- Share your thoughts! Check out the Greenversations blog post “Bike to Work Day — Who’s In?” about biking to work, and tell us about your ride to to the office or wherever you go.
