With the weather absolutely gorgeous as of late, I am seeing more and more people out riding bikes. That is awesome! What’s even better is that I am noticing more and more people commuting into their places of work. There are countless studies out there showing the mental and physical benefits of cycling. And certainly having fewer cars out on the highway is safer and more environmentally sound.
Each spring, many cities across the country celebrate their own Bike Months, and Bike to Work Days. Here in Colorado, June is Bike Month, and the fourth Wednesday each June is Colorado’s Bike To Work Day. The Colorado Department of Transportation offers several tips to further encourage more cyclists commuting to work.
So get on out, and if it’s only going to be once or twice a year that you ride to your place of work, let’s make it next Wednesday, June 26th. Often times, local communities will setup free pancake or doughnut stations, free minor maintenance, and more incentives to get everyone out on their bikes.
