I was so inspired by the event last year that I wrote an article at Matador Life about Biking to Work. As originally reported in that piece, a large proportion of first time bicycle commuters who take part in National Ride to Work Day continue to do so months and years later.
I’m no exception. One year later and I’m still pedaling to work, waving to drivers I pass while they’re stuck in traffic, avoiding the seasonal flus and colds that get passed around in trains and buses, and just enjoying the exercise and fresh air (especially riding through the park).
So I kind of find it my duty now to promote this fantastic yearly event, aimed to increase awareness of this alternative mode of transportation.
