Communities across Maryland and around the country will hold rallies, parties, pit stops, and other fun events to celebrate and promote cycling to work on Friday, May 17. Whether you are a first timer or a weekend rider, Bike to Work Day is a great way to discover how biking can be a fun everyday transportation option.
Why Bike to Work?
Cycling can be a fun way to get to and from work, increase physical activity, help the environment, reduce traffic congestion, and save money. While owning and operating an automobile can cost more than $9,000 per year, owning and maintaining a bicycle can cost as little as $120 per year.
