The 2016 Bike to Work Week

The 2016 Bike to Work Week is May 16-20, with Bike to Work Day on May 20.

Green Car reports (writing from an electric car perspective) that the average single-trip distance? Just 5.95 miles. Of the 106,681 survey participants who drove to work every day in a car, 95 percent of them travelled less than 40 miles to work, with the average commute distance being 13.6 miles.

Ease into a transition and set a goal to bike to work a few days over the next month, or whenever the weather and light are good. Every trip you avoid in your car, emits less CO2 into the atmosphere, saves your car a little wear/tear, saves fuel, saves your money and give your body much needed physical activity.
