The reasons why individuals ride bicycles to work or school fall into several categories; to save money or time; to stay healthy, to help the environment. The first National Bike to Work Day was in 1956 to celebrate and encourage bicycling as a viable mode of transportation. Since then, it has grown into National Bike to Work month and here at TransOptions we encourage participation with our annual Bike to Work Challenge.
Atlantic Health System, a Platinum New Jersey Smart Workplace, strongly encourages biking to work through education, resources and promotion.
For the last two years, Atlantic Health System has partnered with TransOptions and the adult bicycle riding club, Morristown Freewheelers, in offering TS101, League of American Cyclists certified class. This nine hour class gives cyclists the confidence they need to ride safely and legally in traffic or on the trail. Atlantic Health System is promoting the class to their employees.
And once again, Atlantic Health System is promoting TransOptions 2013 Bike to Work Challenge with corporate electronic notices provided by TransOptions. If you wish to receive these materials, please email Cathy Boccard or call her at (973) 267-7600.
Atlantic Health System is comprised of Morristown Medical Center, Goryeb Children’s Hospital, Overlook Medical Center, Summit, and Newton Medical Center, Newton.
