Aside from the health benefits from the fresh air and exercise, many Burlington employers or groups actively encourage employees to walk or bike to work. Ask a personnel or human resources specialist at your workplace or your coworkers about walking and biking. Also check out the benefits offered by the Campus Area Transportation Management Association http://www.catmavt.org/index.php?option=com_content&view=frontpage&Itemid=1
You could also join the Bicycle Benefits program which allows you to take advantage of discounts at participating businesses. The concept is easy: purchase a $5 sticker, affix it to your helmet, then present it for your discount at more than 50 participating stores.
