Commuting on foot or by bicycle is one of the easiest ways to be a physically active person. Studies show those who actively commute are more productive employees, healthier people, and usually in a better mood than their driving counterparts.
Plan Your Bike Commute
Make sure your bike is in good working order, and bring bike lights and a sturdy lock. If your commute is short, try riding in your work clothes and setting a relaxed pace. If your commute is longer or it is a hot day, wear casual clothing and bring your work clothes in a pannier or backpack. View our bike maps to choose the best route, and brush up on the rules of the road before you head to work or school. See more bicycle commuting tips here.
