Commuting by Bike - Work

Picture of Person on Bike

Bicycling can be a fun, dependable and virtually free mode of transportation. Bicycling also burns 300 to 500 calories an hour, so you can commute and stay fit at the same time.

Once you discover the freedom, convenience and fitness benefits of biking to work, you'll wonder why you didn't start riding sooner. If your work place is too far to bike, consider riding to transit stations or Park & Ride lots. Enjoy the ride!

Determine what route you will take.

Decide if you need a change of clothes.

Know in advance where you'll park.
