Why should you support biking? Commuters select their travel modes based on travel time, convenience, and the need for trips during the day. For distances of less than five miles, the bicycle is a practical alternative mode of transportation. Additionally, employees who care about their health, the environment, or saving money will often ride from 10 or more miles away. If you can answer yes to one or more of the following questions, then promoting bicycle commuting at your business is worth the effort. • Does your company support innovative ideas that improve employee health and morale? • Is your company situated in a bikefriendly land-use environment? • Is automobile access to your work congested? • Do you have a limited number of parking spaces available? • Does one or more of your employees use a bicycle for transportation or recreation? • Are your employees interested in a physically fit, active lifestyle? • Do you have people in your company who are concerned about the environment? • Do you have employees who live within five miles of work?
