More and more Americans are bicycling to work. From 2000 to 2011, the number of bicycle commuters in the U.S. grew by more than 47 percent.
Since more than half of U.S. workers live within five miles of their workplace, bicycling is a feasible and fun way to get to work. And it’s healthy, too, says Darrin D’Agostino, DO, MPH, Chair of Internal Medicine at UNTHSC.
There’s no better time to get into the swing of things. Friday is national Bike to Work Day. As part of the day’s festivities, the City of Fort Worth is hosting a Bike to Work Day party at UNT Health Science Center.
