PEOPLE bike to work for various reasons. For some, itís a way to help the environment. Others see it as a regular opportunity to exercise, or to save money. For avid cyclists, itís a way to log in miles. All great reasons to commute by bike ó but not the main reason I do it.

I appreciate how biking to work allows me to be outside for at least a small part of my day.

All of the above. Except the environment.

Originally started for exercise, and surprisingly found a huge mental benefit. However, whatever cycling does to "blow up your skirt" is fine by me. Cycling makes me feel alive and connected to the world around me.
