SATURDAY, MAY 18: PEDAL POWER

Profile AmericaSaturday, May 18th.  For Americans who couldn't observe yesterday's National Bike to Work Day by pedaling to their jobs, there is still time to catch up.  All of May is National Bike Month, noting that across the U.S., more than 38 million people enjoy riding their bikes.  From coast-to-coast, people are expected to take part in a wide range of activities sponsored by environmental and civic groups, health organizations, and police departments.  Even in the face of rising gas prices, the vast majority of us — more than three-quarters — drive to work alone.  Slightly over 5 percent use public transportation, and just under that percentage use bikes and other means to get to their jobs.  You can find more facts about America's people, places and economy from the American Community Survey at <www.census.gov>.
