In many cities, commuters are leaving their cars at home, strapping on a helmet, and pedaling to work.  Bicycling is a healthy and pleasant alternative to crowded buses, traffic jams, and air pollution.
 
More than 17,000 commuters pedal to work each day in Portland, Oregon.  This city has the largest percentage of bikers in the nation. 
 
In some cities, riders can join a “bike bus” that travels together on a predetermined timetable.  This offers safety, companionship, and encouragement to new commuters and veterans alike.  Separate bike lanes and well-maintained roads increase safety for those cycling to work. 
 
Each spring, bicycle advocacy groups encourage two-wheel commuting with Bike-to-Work Day activities.  On May 18, 2012, in cities from San Francisco to Washington, D.C., volunteers handed out route information and set up pit stops for first-time commuters.  Organizers hoped people would see the advantages and continue to ride to work after trying it for one day.
 
A fun and healthy way to get to work, biking is also great for the environment.  If one in ten commuters switched to cycling to work, two billion gallons of gas would be saved each year!
