DURHAM: In recognition of Bike to Work Day, The Regional Municipality of Durham is encouraging commuters to cycle to work, in an effort to be healthy, save money and help the environment.
Bike to Work Day kick starts Bike Month, a month of cycling events, celebrated across the Greater Toronto and Hamilton Area, to promote the benefits of cycling.
“Bike to Work Day aims to encourage those who can cycle to work, to try something new. Cycling is cost-effective, eases traffic congestion and improves physical activity levels,” says Brian Bridgeman, Commissioner of Planning and Economic Development.
