SARASOTA COUNTY – Sarasota County is encouraging its employees and all county residents to try something different on their commute this Friday for Bike to Work Day.
“Biking to work is healthy, good for the environment and can also relieve stress,” said Patrick Lui, Sarasota County bicycle, pedestrian and trails coordinator. “We hope everyone will take this opportunity and experience some of the benefits of alternative transportation.”
The national celebration is part of Bike to Work Week (May 15-19), which coincides with National Bike Month in May.
Residents can share their photos and commuting or biking stories on the Sarasota County Ride & Stride Facebook page and help encourage others to become regular bike commuters in Sarasota County.
