Celebrating Bike to Work Week, May 14-18 © Aurora Photos/Alamy
If you need some inspiration for National Bike to Work Week, we present the racers of the Maratona dles Dolomites road race. The most dedicated of these competitors will pedal over seven mountain passes as they ride 85 miles through the Dolomite mountains of Italy. But hey, even if you’re simply biking a few miles in honor of Bike to Work Week, we commend you. The event is sponsored by the League of American Bicyclists, a group that touts the many benefits of cycling–good health, strong communities, and a healthy environment.
