Bike to Work Day for 2013 is Friday, May 17th. This event is to help promote alternatives to driving a gas guzzling car to work every day and is always held on the third Friday in May, National Bike Month. For one day out of the year, individuals can take the time to get some exercise while learning about a new way to commute to work. Not only is biking to work healthier for the environment, it will keep a lot more money in your pocket.
Since Rob is out on an Across America cycling adventure, and I ride my bike to work a few times a week, we suggest that everyone gets the opportunity to sign up for this great event. Not only will this be a fun change of pace for the average commuter, if you register and track your trip, you get entered for a chance to win some great prizes, including a new bike.
There are pit stop locations, corporate challenges, maps, registration and much more information at the Bike to Work page.
If you do not live in San Diego, or even California, we still suggest you take this as an opportunity to ditch the four wheels for two and have some fun while doing it.
While Rob is cycling out in the middle of the country on his Bamboosero bike, I will be riding alongside the 8 on the great OB bike path when riding to work May 17th. I hope to see you right along side me!
