Bicycling is a healthy, clean, economical and fun way to commute to work.

 

In the time spent getting to work, we can get the exercise we need, that we claim we "don't have time for." Commuting to work by bike or for neighborhood errands is a great way to get fit and stay healthy. Combined with transit, cycling can also be part of a commute over longer distances.

 

Besides providing fun and promoting health, bicycling improves air quality and reduces traffic congestion. The bicycle is the most energy-efficient form of travel ever devised, reducing energy use and fossil fuel dependence.

 

Bicycling is a great commute alternative. Even just a day or two a week is a great way to save money, get some exercise and be kind to the environment.

Walking to work is a great way to stay healthy and save money on your commuting costs.

 

Regular, quick walking is the simplest and the most effective way of preventing cardiovascular disease for both men and women; a brisk tempo -- over 5 km/hour (about 3.1 miles per hour) -- is more important than the duration, according to studies in the Journal of the American Medical Association.

 

Both biking and walking, after an initial investment in equipment, are relatively inexpensive. You can save lots of money using pedal or foot power instead of buying gasoline while also helping the environment.
