One of the many aspects of diversity is how we each get to work – many of us take the bus, others drive, carpool or vanpool. Then there are the bicycle commuters – A hardy group of folks that bicycle to work for a variety of reasons. For some folks it is actually quicker to ride a bike than it is to drive, although this is truer in a big city than here in County. Saving money is another popular motivation. However, probably the most common reason to ride into work is as part of a healthy life style. I have always enjoyed both the challenges and the invigorating start to the day bicycle commuting provides.
This Friday, May 18th, we celebrate the bicycle commuter, and encourage others to take it up, by having Bike to Work Day.
If you do ride your bicycle to work, please stay safe out there!
