With the nice weather we are expecting outside, you might want to pedal your way to work.

Friday is National Bike to Work Day! It started in 1955 by the League of American Bicyclists and is one of the older national days.

It's always held on the third Friday in May because May is National Bike Month.

There are a lot of benefits to riding your bike to work: you get your workout in, you are not creating air pollution and if you ride with others, you can make new friends.

The number of bike commuters in the U.S. grew more than 47% between the year 2000 and 2011.

If you decide to pedal to work, use the hashtag #BikeToWorkDay to connect with others on social media.
