Strap on your helmet and lace up your shoes — Friday is National Bike To Work Day!
It’s one of the older national days — it was started in 1955 by the league of American bicyclists. It’s always held on the third Friday in May because May is National Bike Month.
People are biking more not only to get in a good workout but also to cut down on pollution caused by cars.
The number of bike commuters in the U.S. grew more than 47-percent between the year 2000 and 2011.
