CAMPAIGN: Pedal Power! May is National Bike Month


Cycling is a zero emissions emitting form of alternative transportation, great stress release, enjoyable exercise, and is a component of a sustainable lifestyle.  The latest cycling benefit?  Cycling is a great way for those living the green life to walk, or should I say, ride the talk. 

A question commonly asked in our eco friendly consulting centers around staying fresh and clean at work after riding in to the office.  As a bike commuter and green living consultant, following are some proven suggestions for a pleasant commute and work day. Begin by selecting the most pleasant route.  One of the great things about bike commuting to work is avoiding the stressful world of driving.  Look for streets with attractive scenery and bask in the charm of new routes. 
  • Wear the right clothes.  Opt for wicking materials that help evaporate sweat off of your body and help to keep you cool.  Find ways to keep your gear off your body.  Detours offer recycled pannier bags that that hangs off your bike.   Each bag is made up of about 100 recycled juice packs.

  • Have the essential toiletries on hand. Stay fresh with organic and natural personal care items such as deodorant, hair products, and lotions.  If shower facilities aren't available, wipe down with EO sanitizing hand wipes.  They are organic and biodegradable.

  • Give yourself time to cool off.  If you don't have access to a shower, try cooling off in front of a fan and reply to email prior to cleaning up and putting on work clothes.
