Bike to Work Day 2014

alt

Houston’s Bike to Work Day is May 9, 2014

 

The City of Houston is working towards providing a city-wide bikeway network to enhance mobility for all skill levels of bicyclists and for all transportation purposes: commuter, recreation, social and tourism. Although more than half of the U.S. population lives within five miles of their workplace, lack of knowledge and incentive has deterred many from commuting by bike. Hundreds of U.S. cities have been successful in increasing bicycle commuters by offering enticements on Bike to Work Day.

 

Why?

 

IT'S FUN. Biking to work builds morale, encourages camaraderie, and is a great way to get active in your community.

IT'S HEALTHY. Active employees are more alert, take fewer sick days, and are more productive.

IT'S GREEN. Biking reduces your carbon footprint, reduces traffic congestion, and can save you money.

 

 

This is a great opportunity to meet and greet other bicyclists and city officials, as well as to learn more about commuter cycling and the Houston Bikeway Program.
