Bike to Work Day 2014
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.
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.
All riders are encouraged to wear bike helmets while cycling as well as get a bicycle tune up periodically.
