According to the League of American Bicyclists:
In 2014, National Bike to Work Day is May 16
More than half of the U.S. population lives within five miles of their workplace, making bicycling a feasible and fun way to get to work. With increased interest in healthy, sustainable and economic transportation options, it’s not surprising that, from 2000 to 2011, the number of bicycle commuters in the U.S. grew by more than 47 percent.
Hundreds of American communities have been successful in increasing bicycle commuting by providing Bike to Work Week and Bike to Work Day events.
Bike/Walk to Work Day is a separate event, but who cares, every day should be bike/walk day.
