  • You know the story... you'd love to get more exercise, if only you had more time in the day. And if you could only avoid having to sit in traffic, then you'd have more time for exercise. So, why not combine both by bicycling, walking, or skating to and from work?

    Walking, bicycling, and skating are healthy and inexpensive commute options for many commuters. Employers often have showers and changing facilities on-site, meaning that you can be fresh for that 8:30 am meeting with the CFO! And, even if you live a good distance from work, many transit agencies around the country have bicycle-storage on buses and rail cars. It is now easier than ever to combine bicycling with transit.

    The average bicycle commute in the United States is about two miles, and the average walking distance is about a half mile. If you were to bicycle or walk at the average distance, you would typically save time over driving, if you also consider finding a place to park and walking from the parking lot to your employer.

    Benefits of Bicycling, Walking, and Skating

    • Exercise and commute at the same time!
    • Reduce the overall cost of parking, gasoline, insurance, and wear/tear on your automobile
    • Relax and let someone else drive you home
