US Bike to Work Week will be taking place from May 11-15, 2015, culminating in Bike to Work day on May 15.
While over half of the American population lives within five miles (eight kilometers) of their workplace – making cycling a totally feasible option for their daily commute – many Americans still don’t ride a bike to work. In 2010, only 0.53 percent of US citizens identified as bicycle commuters.
However, this seems to be changing quickly. Bewteen 2000 and 2013, the number of bicycle commuters in the US grew 63 percent, thanks in large part to the work of organizations like the League of American Bicyclists and events like Bike to Work Week. Because of their efforts and the efforts of passionate advocates around the country, more and more Americans are realizing that biking to work is a safe, fun and viable transportation option that keeps you happy and healthy.
Bike to Work Week will be taking place from May 11-15, 2015, culminating in Bike to Work day on May 15. There are plenty of events happening in communities all across the US to show first time riders and seasoned commuters alike how fun and freeing bike commuting can be. Check out one of these great Bike to Work week events and initiatives below, or talk to local advocates to find out what’s happening in your community. Happy riding!
