National Bike To Work Day

National Bike to Work Day takes place on Friday, May 19, 2021, right in the middle of National Bike Month. The observance encourages us to bike to work, but it also raises awareness of cyclists as they commute to and from work each day.

As more and more people take to bicycles for transportation to and from work, it’s important for both cyclists and drivers to share the road safely. Both must be aware of the traffic laws and follow them. More and more communities are adding bike lanes to improve safety. In the United States, from the year 2000 to 2011, the number of bicycle commuters grew by more than 47 percent.

Due to the ongoing pandemic, Sun Prairie Moves is NOT hosting a BTWD station, rather, we encourage you to share your pictures and stories on our Facebook Event page.

Some of the benefits of commuting to work by bicycle include:

  • Physical fitness – Cyclists get an aerobic workout before and after work. It’s also low impact exercise which is easy on the joints, unlike jogging.
  • Fuel savings – They save fuel costs which in turn puts more money back in their pockets.
  • Smaller carbon footprint – By cycling, they reduce carbon emissions resulting in cleaner air.
  • Automobile longevity – Get more life out of their motor vehicle by using it for more necessary trips.

National Bike to Work Day promotes the bicycle as a healthy and safe alternative for commuting to work.
