The Seacoast's 12th annual Bike/Walk to Work Day is coming up May 16th, 2014. This year Seacoast residents have more ways than ever to join the healthy, dollar-saving, congestion reducing, breeze-in-your-face fun.

"Biking or walking are great ways to get where you need to go. Gas is going to clear $4.00/gallon again this summer, so leaving your car at home will save you a lot of money. You're also fitting a workout into a busy day, reducing your pollution footprint, and avoiding traffic jams." said Josh Pierce, president of SABR. "Here on the Seacoast, we're blessed with relatively flat terrain, stunning scenery, and several great public transportation options, making car-free commuting a great idea."
