Summer Sports Week: Bicycling

Strength in numbers Time spent enjoying the outdoors recharges your spirit and gives you further motivation to protect the planet. This week, we'll provide tips for keeping your summer athletic activities green.

Tip #2: Make Yourself Known

In most U.S. cities, cars far outnumber bikes, making cycling more dangerous and deterring potential riders. Encourage green transportation in your community by participating in group rides like Critical Mass or local events such as San Francisco's Sunday Streets or Portland's Sunday Parkways. Can't find an event in your area? Make a date with friends. Remember to follow the rules of the road and be courteous at all times--you'll be more likely to tempt beginning cyclists to join you and to convince drivers that you belong on the road.
