Tomorrow, October 16, is Ride to Work Day, an annual event on our Bacchus Marsh community calendar when all Bacchus Marsh residents are encouraged to leave the car in the garage and pedal their way to work.
According to the Ride To Work Program, the benefits of riding to work are vast:
- It’s fun
- It’s cheap
- It’s convenient
- You can lose/maintain weight
- Your cardiovascular capacity will increase
- It will reduce stress
While it’s great to ride every day of the year, for those who typically drive Ride To Work Day is a great chance to break your routine and get started. When you consider the benefits of riding, it’s hard to know why we don’t do it more often. It may be that we’re usually running late, we don’t want to be outdoors if the weather turns bad, or we can’t ride in our work clothes. If this is you, our Professionals Arbee Real Estate team would love for you to consider getting up a little earlier, taking advantage of the warmer weather, and taking a spare set of clothes with you to change in to at the office.
You’ll be amazed how fantastic and alert you’ll feel after a little pedalling and fresh air on the bike in the morning. Let us know if you’ll be cycling to work tomorrow.
