Everyone is encouraged to trade their cars for their bikes and participate in the Sioux City metropolitan area’s Bike to Work Day event on Friday, May 18th, 2018. Bike to Work Day is part of a national effort, endorsed by the U.S. Department of Transportation and promoted by the League of American Bicyclists, to highlight the benefits of bicycling, and to prove to people that it is feasible to leave the car at home for some commutes.

Benefits of biking include: better physical and mental health, a cleaner environment, and saving commuters money. Bicycling to work is an easy way to incorporate physical activity and exercise into each day, which contributes to better physical and mental health. Bicycles produce no greenhouse gas emissions, which makes them great for the environment. Bicycles are much more affordable to own and operate than a motor vehicle, since you do not need to pay for gas, parking, insurance, and other vehicle expenses.

Events are being offered on Bike to Work Day. The day’s events include a complimentary commuter breakfast at Albrecht’s Cycle shop (7-9 am), and all-day food or drink specials for bicyclists who show their helmets at these participating downtown locations. 1008 Key Club, Bergies, Bodega 401, Buffalo Alice, Jitters, M’s on 4th, McCarthy and Bailey’s Irish Pub, PBR, Rebos, Rox and Rails, Schweddy’s Hot Dog Shop, SoHo Kitchen and Bar,  The Diving Elk and Work and Church. (Check with each business for their specials that day.)

When you register to participate in Bike to Work Day, you will be entered in a drawing to win prizes from sponsors.
