Bike to Work Week, May 14-18th

Category:

40% of all trips in the U.S. are less than two miles, making bicycling a feasible and fun way to run errands and/or get to work. The week of May 14-18, we invite you to celebrate bicycling as a clean, fun, and healthy way to get to work! With increased interest in healthy, sustainable and economic transportation options, it’s not surprising that, from 2000 to 2013, the number of bicycle commuters in the U.S. grew by more than 62 percent. If your business would like a flyer to distribute to employees to encourage participation in Bike to Work week, contact Christine Bullerman of Community Wellness Partners, cbullerman@co.nobles.mn.us. Consider offering an incentive to those employees that participate such as a healthy snack, a gift card, or workplace acknowledgement. Celebrate with thousands of businesses across the county participating in this active week!
