In the time we already spend getting to work, we can get the exercise we need, but “don’t have time for.” Commuting to work by bike or for neighborhood errands is a great way to get fit and stay healthy. Combined with transit, cycling can also be part of a commute over longer distances. Besides having fun and getting healthier, you’ll be improving our air quality and reducing traffic congestion. The bicycle is the most energy-efficient form of travel ever devised — so you’ll be reducing energy use and our dependence on fossil fuels.
Bicycling is a great commute alternative. Even just a day or two a week is a great way to save money, get some exercise and be kind to the environment.
