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 [email protected] . 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-
