Why bike to work? For your health!
Physical activity helps control weight, reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease and diabetes, strengthen bones and improve mood. When riding combines commute time with time set aside for exercise, you may come out ahead. Some ride gently to their destination and then take a tougher route home for more intensity. Can't we all use it after the 'Winter of the Big Snow'?
Why bike? To save money!
League of American Bicyclists
The League was founded in 1880 as the League of American Wheelman, advocates for paved roads to improve riding conditions for people on bikes. Currently they are best known for bike advocacy and education. The Bicycle Friendly America program sets for awards for businesses, communities, states and universities. Anchorage received a Bronze Level award as a Bicycle Friendly Community (BFC) in 2009 and a Silver Level Award in 2013. With the expiration of the 2013 award, an application was submitted in February 2017. Announcements are expected for Bicycle Friendly Communities toward the end of May 2017. There are 404 Bicycle Friendly Communities nationwide. Sitka, Anchorage and Juneau are three cities in Anchorage to receive BFC awards; UAF (Fairbanks) is a Silver Level Bicycle Friendly University. There are various Bicycle Friendly Businesses in Alaska including Gold Level Alaska Native Tribal Health Consortium and Southcentral Foundation. The League Smart Cycling curriculum has been used for many trainings in Anchorage.
