Bobzilla and Mahaska Wellness Coalition “Bike To Work Day”
Oskaloosa, Iowa – On Friday May 18, 2012 Bobzilla’s Bike Shop and the Mahaska Wellness Coalition (MWC) invites the community to join together and ride a bicycle to work. Bike to Work Day is a free event for both new and experienced bicycle commuters. Bikers for the day can register by sending an email stating “I plan to Bike to Work on May 18” to firstname.lastname@example.org . ExDrink flavored water or energy drinks will be provided to participants who have 5 or more riders from the same job site: Team names & job site supervisor permission must be included in the email.
Biking to work is an option to continue improving your activity minutes and continuing to Live Healthy. A big bonus of bike commuting is all the calories you’ll burn. An average 150-pound person will burn about 500 calories riding a leisurely—paced 30 minutes to work and 30 minutes home. At that rate, you’ll shed those extra, stubborn 5 to 10 pounds in about two to three months (Source Bike League). “Stay healthy, feel good and join us in riding a bike to work”-MWC-
