May is Bike to Work Month

Hooray for spring! On May 10th White Plains school children will participate in Walk / Bike to School Day. The kids have the right idea! It’s a great time of year to consider biking or walking to work – even occasionally! Better health is one of the many benefits: 

Active commuting that incorporates cycling and walking is associated with an overall 11% reduction in cardiovascular risk.
  • Women who walk or bike 30 minutes a day have a lower risk of breast cancer.
  • Each hour per day spent driving corresponds with a 6% increase in the odds of being obese.
Get active, go green and help us win the Green Cities Commuter Challenge.  Right now New Rochelle is ahead, but with your participation, we can (and will) surpass them! It’s easy to sign up. Plus, you’ll be entered in a raffle to win a $50 Visa Reward Card!

The Green Cities Commuter Challenge is supported by NYSDOT, NYSERDA and the cities of New Rochelle, White Plains and Yonkers to encourage sustainable transportation, resulting in reduced traffic congestion and greenhouse gas emissions.
