September is coming which means we are gearing up for the Bike Commute Challenge. This event challenges employees to stop driving and start biking to work. Many different companies in the area are competing against each other to see who bikes the most.
Not only does biking to work save you from car expenses, but a recent study shows that people who walk, bike, or even take the bus to work have lower levels of fat than those who drive! The average weight difference was about 6 pounds for men and about 5 pounds for women.
Try biking, walking, or riding the bus to work to cut your car costs and lower your risks of complications from obesity. Let us know how you get to work!
