The Queen song aside, now is a great time to start riding your bike to work or school, especially since this week is Bike to Work Week.
Biking to work is an efficient and fun way to get the exercise you need, without having to find extra time to work out. And this year, with gasoline prices as high as they are, biking to work makes more sense than ever.
Then there is the issue of the carbon footprint. The Institute for Transportation and Development Policy concluded bicycling could help cut carbon emissions from urban transportation 11 percent.
That’s where our project Menlo Spark comes in. They have been working with the community in Menlo Park to develop a special bike path for commuters. Check out what else they are doing at http://menlospark.org/
