Burn Calories, Not Gas: May 17 - 21 is Bike to Work Week

As the celebration of Bike Month continues, Bike to Work Week is May 17 -21, 2021 culminating with Bike to Work Day on Friday, May 21, 2021. Biking to work when possible helps reduce your carbon footprint by taking cars off the road. Did you know that 40% of all trips in the U.S. are less than two miles, making bicycling a feasible and fun way to get to work or to run errands.
