It's Bike-to-Work Week
The League of American Bicyclists is promoting Bike-to-Work Week from May 11-15 and Bike-to-Work Day on Friday, May 15.
Cycling is not only less stressful on the environment, it also makes you smarter! That’s right: riding a bicycle, like most forms of aerobic exercise, can actually improve cognitive function.
"It’s long been known that physical activity can improve your mental outlook and help slow the results of aging, but scientific studies continue to stack up showing that regular exercise actually helps the brain to function better," according to Lighter Footstep.
