Did you know that almost 40% of Bay Area commuters live within five miles of their workplace? If everyone who lives within this ideal distance pedaled to work, hundreds of thousands of cars would be off the road and air pollution that day would be reduced significantly. Experience bicycle commuting as a healthy and viable way to get to work.
