BTWD promotes bicycling as a healthy commuting option that lowers commuting costs, reduces vehicle wear and tear, lessens traffic congestion, encourages healthier lifestyles, and improves air quality. The event, which comes during May’s Mental Health Awareness Month, also celebrates the powerful effect exercise has on physical and mental health.
“Bike to Work Day also presents an opportunity to remind ourselves of the important role exercise plays in maintaining physical and mental health,” they added. “We’re excited to see our participants have the opportunity to get outside, engage with the community and hop on their bicycles or scooters or skateboards for an energizing morning ride. And we are grateful to all the partners coming together to strengthen our community.”
