Where EverywhereWhen 05/13/2013
Bike to Work Week is May 13-17 and Bike to Work Day is Friday, May 17.
More than half of the US population lives within five miles of their workplace, making bicycling a feasible and fun way to get to the office. With increased interest in healthy, sustainable and economic transportation options, it’s not surprising that, from 2000 to 2011, the num- ber of bicycle commuters in the U.S. grew by more than 47 percent!
Hundreds of American communities have increased bicycle commuters by working to create a more Bicycle Friendly America, providing encouragement programs and events, like Bike to Work Day.
And that effort makes a difference: According to a study by the San Diego Association of Governments, one out of five people who participated in their Bike to Work Day promotion as first time commuters became regular bike commuters.
