Today In History: Bike to Work Day


Originated by the League of American Bicyclists in 1956, Bike to Work Day usually occurs in Bike to Work Week which usually falls within May of every year; the annual event aims to promote biking as a excellent option for commuting; it is less expensive, more environmentally friendly, and healthier than driving a car or using modes of public transportation. On Bike-to-Work Day numerous organizations in cities across the United States, San Francisco to New York, host bicycle-related events and activities to increase awareness of the benefits and joy of cycling.

The following articles are drawn from Proquest Historical Newspapers, which informs and inspires classroom teaching and learning.
