What is Bike to Work Week?
Chicagoland Bicycle Federation, in cooperation with the City of Chicago, celebrates Bike to Work Week June 9 to 15. We want you to bike to work — it’s easy and fun and we will show you how.
Bike to Work Week gives bicycle commuters and non-commuters alike the chance to learn more about traveling by bicycle. Did you know that only 7 to 10 percent of bicyclists are regular commuters? Bike to Work Week is for anyone wanting to ride their bicycle to and from work or school, or to improve their existing routines.
The Chicagoland Bicycle Federation helps remove the barriers of biking to work:
* The Commuter Challenge provides a fun framework for your coworkers and bosses to join you in biking to work* We are with you along the way — commuter stations refuel you and give you a place to take a quick break * From what to wear to where to go, how-to classes and free brochures answer your questions and give you the safety tips and tricks you need to make your trip fun and easy
And just think … you’re doing much more then just biking to work:
* Bicycling reduces pollution and helps stem global warming * Bicycling reduces traffic congestion * Bicycling reduces run-away transportation costs resulting from driving
