Have you ever wondered if you could make your commute by bike? Here's your chance to give it a try with a little help from Montgomery County Commuter Services. Montgomery County is joining jurisdictions nationwide for Bike to Work Day on Friday, May 18, and I'll be at the White Flint and Rockville pit stops, so I hope to see you there. Bike commuting not only has exercise benefits; it also is an effective way to improve air quality, reduce traffic congestion and noise, and conserve energy. For most trips of less than five miles, commuting by bicycle may take about the same amount of time as traditional transportation options. For longer trips, you can combine Ride On, which has bike racks on the front of all buses, with bicycle commuting.
