Riding a bike to work is an old trend with new benefits. As Americans become increasingly health conscious, they realize that bicycling is a viable commute option. Instead of going to the gym after work, try riding your bicycle to work. Riding a bike to work won't just make you healthier --it will also save you money. Did you know that cycling is one of the least expensive forms of transportation? It cost just pennies a day. With the increase cost of gas it is becoming increasingly a viable alternative.
Starting January 2009, workers who use two-wheelers as their primary transportation mode to get to and from work will be eligible for a $20-a-month, tax-free reimbursement from their employers for bicycle-related expenses. For more information click HERE.
Bicycling is one of the least expensive ways to get to work, and walking saves even more. More than half of all Americans live less than five miles from where they work. The average annual price of keeping an automobile running is at least $3,000. The cost of running a bike for a year is less than $300. Enjoy the savings.
Walking and Bicycling is one of the best forms of cardiovascular exercise. Personal fitness is improved without setting aside additional time for exercise.
Bicycling is the most efficient form of transportation. Bikes are self-powered, quite, don’t eat gas, don’t release toxic fumes, don’t drip car fluids, reduce road wear and pollutants from the air we breathe.
Bicycle commuters can leave behind congested roadways for a quiet back street or a scenic bike path. Commute with a bike buddy and make it fun and socially rewarding.
More and more employers are struggling with limited parking. Once at work, parking is usually a breeze for bike commuters.
