Happy Bike to Work Week!
May is National Bike Month and as the weather warms up, so does the number of people taking out their bikes to enjoy the nice weather. There are a number of benefits to riding your bike including: saving money, a new mode of transportation, boosting your health/mind, saving time, helping the environment, and exploring your community (both natural and urban)! After all that, what better reason to start implementing more bike time in your day than joining in Bike to Work Week?
Bike to Work Week 2013 is May 13th-17th, and National Bike to Work Day is May 17th. As our office is in San Francisco, we joined in on the city’s Bike to Work Day on May 9th with tens of thousands of participants! Plenty of activities were waiting for the bikers including safety workshops, parties, raffles, and giveaways. 25 Energizer stations, complete with volunteers cheering on bikers, handed out free snacks, beverages, and gift bag goodies. Bike mechanics, or “bike doctors” were even provided for basic bike maintenance for any bike that needed some extra TLC. Clark, our Fitness Director, got some great pictures of his scenic commute from Mill Valley to San Francisco. It’s amazing how many normally overlooked sights are discovered and appreciated when we take the time to bike. Check out his pictures here: http://ow.ly/kUWby
