The event encourages people to take advantage of two-wheeled transportation and show appreciation for those who already do it. Other reasons include health benefits and cost savings.
Organizers are expanding the event this year, making May, "Bike to Work Month." Students can join in for Bike to School Day on May 8. Each Saturday, people are encouraged to take two-wheels to Urbana's Farmers' Market.
