Biking is an active and healthy way to commute that saves you moneypositively impacts the environment and is way more fun than driving!

If you live within 15 miles of work, bike commuting is very practical. All you need to get started is a bike, helmet and a lock.

I bike to work all year. Some of my most joyful and memorable commutes have been on winter days, when the added chllenge of snow, ice, and cold made an otherwise routine activity more exciting and fun.
