Bike Walk Connecticut promotes active transportation and bike commuting all around the state, but especially on Friday, May 15, National Bike to Work Day.
Bike commuting reduces traffic, avoids pollution, saves gas, and burns calories. More than half of the U.S. population lives within five miles of their workplace, making bicycling a realistic, fun way to get to work.
Rookies, veteran commuters and everyone in between are encouraged to pledge to Bike to Work then ride on May 15 at www.bikewalkct.org/bike-to-work.
