Another reason to ride a bike!
The annual cost of maintaining a bike is 20 times less than maintaining and driving a car.
Most of us have grown up riding bikes (bicycles), which now have become a distant memory, since we've moved on and learned how to ride motorcycles and drive cars. However, driving cars and motorcycles to work and back everyday only uses up too much of gas, and benefits you in no way.
Moreover, you get stuck in traffic for hours, which increases your stress level and makes you feel tired as hell. It's like you spend half your life stuck in traffic jams. But thanks to the growing number of fitness freaks, you can now see a number of people who use bikes to commute to work.
Another reason to ride a bike to work would be the Bike to Work Day or Bike to Work Week, which is an annual event that is held in spring, usually in the month of May, across the United States and Canada.
But if you are the one who anyway rides to work on a bike, then we're sure that every month is a Bike Month and everyday is a Bike Day for you. Still, there are some challenges that you must be facing as well. Let's take a look them.

Either you've gotten into some kind of a quarrel with a fellow cyclist, or any other vehicle that always honks at you for no apparent reason. Cars and buses are as good as big monsters to you. Your heart skips a beat every time you come near one.

You feel fresh throughout the day, and also contribute to saving the planet as you pedal down the road. Moreover, you always have some good amount of money to spend at the end of every month. Go green, get fitter, and save money!
