Biking to Work Around the Country

 

The League of American Bicyclists
started Bike-to-Work Day in 1956 as a part of National Bike-to-Work
Week, which in some cities has turned into Bike Month.

Bike-to-Work Day is an annual event that promotes and celebrates the
bicycle as a viable mode of transportation. On Bike-to-Work Day,
national, regional, and local bicycle advocacy groups often organize
bicycle-related events.

Today’s streetfilm features Bike-to-Work Day in Austin, San Francisco, New York City and Portland, Oregon.
