Activists from groups like the Outdoor Life Center and Bike to Work Day are promoting cycling as the best way to build endurance, get fit and help improve your health.
The movement is gaining steam.
A study released this month found that more than half of Americans are active in some way.
It found that biking to work is the fastest way to get around the city.
In addition to boosting heart health, the study found that it can help you lose weight and improve your blood sugar levels.
While biking is definitely not for everyone, the movement is being embraced by people who are motivated to make changes.
