Oct 1: Atlanta Bike to Work Challenge kicks off!

October 1st dawned wet and grey, but thousands of Atlantans biked to work anyway as the first Metro Atlanta Bike to Work Challenge kicked off. 

If you're not registered yet, it's not too late -sign up on your own or form a team of up to five to improve your chances of winning. Prices include a big REI giftcard (can't go wrong there...) 

If you're on the fence, consider the financial benefits illustrated by Sociecity - and this is just the savings. 

Other side effects of biking to work include: fabulous legs, feeling the wind in your face, socializing on your commute (hi neighbor!), and the whee! sensation biking the drive creates. 

But don't take our word for it - try it yourself! Researchers say it takes at least 21 days to change a habit. Sign up for the Bike to Work Challenge and give yourself one month. It just might change your life.
