In case you haven’t heard, Bike to Work Day is happening this Friday, May 16th across the country and there are so many reasons why you should take part! From the east coast to the west, everyone from everyday bike commuters to weekend riders will unite and pedal to their workplace.

The event coincides with National Bike Month, and aims to raise awareness of ‘commuting without polluting.’ There are endless benefits for swapping four wheels for two, like saving money on gas and improving cardiovascular health.

From Brooklyn to Queens, riders can take a break and sip free Brooklyn Roasting Company coffee, snack on KIND bars or hydrate with Vita Coco coconut water. There are 9 pit-stops in all, and you can click here to find a location that’s on your way to work!

We can’t wait to snap on our helmets and commute on our bikes this Friday! Will you be taking part in Bike to Work Day? Let us know in the comments below!
