Planning Your Bicycle Travel Weekend (May 2022)

Bicycle Commuting Helps You...

. . . Save Time.
Time after time, in city after city, commuting by bike has proven faster for many urban trips.

. . . Save Money.
Commuting by bike has a low cost per mile and saves wear and tear on your automobile.

. . . Stay Healthy.
Feeling time crunched?  A bike to work turns your drive-time to work-out time.  Already working out?  Bike commuting frees up more time in a busy life. 

. . . Be Green.
You avoid idling in traffic, help reduce congestion and pollution. 

. . . Have Fun.
Arrive at work refreshed and invigorated, rather than stressed and frustrated.

Please stop by the Bike Hub and place a pushpin. You can also do this electronically by visiting this page and using the electronic push pin to show the area you commute from: https://gis.in.gov/apps/isdh/BikePin
