FAQ: Isn’t everyday bike to work day?
I always get this question when I post anything related to bike to work month/week/day. The answer for most of us is yes. But here’s my story, bike to work week IS the reason why I started commuting by bike. 3 out 4 of my co-workers that I convinced to ride on bike to work day are still commuting to work. If you convince someone to ride to work for the sake of being ‘Bike to work’ day, there are very good chances that he/she will become a regular commuter.
