Bicycles are both a low-cost and an environmentally friendly means of transportation, and they can be used for commuting to/from work and for to/from meetings or worksites.
- You can encourage the use of bikes by providing safe spaces to park bikes, or by providing shared bikes — including e-bikes — or helmets and locks for transportation to offsite meetings.
- You can help with the expense of making a bicycle a year-round means of transportation (e.g., purchase bicycle hand warmers, offer indoor bike storage).
- Some regions have bike-sharing programs (check with your Town Clerk or local bike shop).
- Even providing bike safety information or education about bikes and bike-riding can encourage use of this affordable means of transportation.
