Get your workout on the way to work this week! By participating in Bike to Work Week, May 13 to 17, you can do both your body and the environment a favor.
Not convinced? This infographic from Stephanie Averkamp at FitnessForWeightLoss.com illustrates the myriad reasons why you should give it a shot. People who bike to work report health improvements, better management of stress (who doesn't want that?) and reduced fatigue.
If that's not enough to get you on two wheels, try this: The average person loses 13 pounds in the first year of commuting by bike. Now we're talking!
Plus, you save money in annual operating expenses and, for some, in healthcare costs.
Give it a shot this week. If it's not for you, go back to your usual commute. But you might be surprised by how rewarding your new, healthy ride to work is.
