Bike Ride to Work 2010

It’s time to ditch the car and try riding your bike to work.  May is Bike Month, so that means there’s no better time to get in shape while do your part to reduce gas consumption and pollution.

Bike Week Events

Cities all across America will be holding events during the entire Ride to Work Week, the week of May 17th – 21st and end with National Bike to Work Day on May 21st.  The League of American Bicyclists have a list of events in almost every major city in which you can participate.  If you don’t see your city listed or you don’t want to participate in an event, don’t sweat it.  You can either ride on your own or get your families, friends and local community involved to participate in your own event.

Even Google is joining in on this even by providing a Google Maps for both the desktop and the Android phone that shows Bike Paths.

Can’t Ride?

There are many out there that don’t feel they could ever ride their bike to work just because it’s too far from their home or their streets are too dangerous.  This doesn’t mean you still can’t ride your bike to work.  Many people drive part of their trip and park their car in a parking lot and ride their bikes the remainder of the way.  Bikes like Montague’s Swissbike are available that make it even easier to bring your bike along without having to have a bike rack.

If you don’t have a bike or don’t have room for one, you can also try carpooling or other ways to reduce you gas usage.  You may not get the health benefits like bike riding, but do your part can make a difference.
