With the warmer months coming up, we’d like to bring focus to something other than our high-performance and stylish vehicles that you’re used to reading about. Instead, we’ll turn our attention to National Bike Month, which we’re celebrating here at College Chevy Buick all month long!
There are many benefits to biking, such as saving money on gas, being earth-friendly, getting exercise, and just the pure enjoyment you get from feeling the wind in your hair and the sun on your back. Whatever your reason, try to get out and enjoy a change of pace. In addition to National Bike Month, Bike to Work Week is this week, May 13-17. A nice bike ride to work would provide some great exercise and that perfect jolt to help you kick-start your day.
Here at College Chevrolet Buick, we take biking very seriously, which is why we paired up with Kathy Roche-Wallace to sponsor her in her “Race Across America”. During her ride “she will ride 3,000 miles across 12 states and climb over 170,000 vertical feet, trying to average about 250 miles per day to finish in the allotted 12 day time period.” Pretty incredible stuff, if you ask us!
As always, remember to always be safe out there when riding your bike. Wear your helmet and signal when you are making a turn. If you are riding at night, make sure to have lights on your bike and wear bright attire. Now get out there and go enjoy yourself!
