Cycling and walking are great ways to get exercise. More than just recreation, walking or riding a bike to work can be a fun commuting option. Depending on your fitness level and distance from work, walking or cycling can be viable transportation alternatives.
If it isn’t feasible to walk or bike the whole way to work, consider walking or biking to the nearest train station or bus stop. Combining transit and active transportation is a great way to reduce your carbon footprint, get exercise and increase your overall health. Employers may encourage walking or cycling by providing bike parking, as well as showers and change room facilities for employees.
