Environmental Dates: Bike to Work Day

Environmental Dates: Bike to Work Day | ecogreenlove

Bike to Work Day is an annual event held on various days in the Spring across the United States and Canada that promotes the bicycle as an option for commuting to work.

Rain or Shine, here are a few tips to follow:

  • Take it slow and steady.
    Streets, train tracks and white paint can get slippery when it rains. AND, your brakes will grab more slowly.
  • Dress for the weather.
    Wear a rain jacket for sure and, if you have them, a pair of rain pants. You’ll stay much drier that way.
  • If you don’t have rain pants, wear old pants you don’t mind getting wet and then bring a dry pair to change into at the office.
  • Wear rubber-soled shoes
    – much easier to push off from a wet pavement than those with leather soles.

The Best regimen for College Fitness [Infographic]

Starting out at college is a time of excitement, anticipation, and oftentimes, extreme nervousness. There are a whole host of prospects that can leave any freshman filled with anxiety, from making friends to maintaining good grades to knowing which classes to take. One of the biggest sources of anxiety for students, however, is unrelated to academics: A large percentage of students greatly fear the famous and dreaded freshman 15. The truth is, this isn’t an irrational fear: Most college students will gain between 15 and 25 pounds by the end of their sophomore year. One of the main causes of the freshman 15? Lack of exercise: Not only do the majority of college students not get the recommended amount of exercise, one in three just don’t exercise at all. To be fair, finding time for exercise in the midst of busy college life can be challenging, but there are some great ways that that particular hurdle can be side-stepped. Today’s infographic takes a look at the best ways for college students to stay fit even in the middle of a dorm room. From cardio to strength training to flexibility, there’s a myriad of ways in which even the biggest of couch potatoes can beat the freshman 15.
