Share this post

In celebration of May being National Bike Month, Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore assembled a team of two-wheeled commuters who volunteered to participate in this year's Federal Bike to Work Challenge. Among them was Nick Simic, a park maintenance crew member, commutes 6 miles a day by bicycle. Last year, 2012, federal employees logged over 5,200 bicycle trips and 65,000 miles in the Challenge, saving the equivalent of over 3,000 gallons of gasoline.
During the first week of the Challenge, the team from Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore logged 13 trips, 78 miles, prevented about 76 pounds of carbon from being released into the atmosphere and burned an estimated 4,000 calories. Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore is accessible via the Calumet, Marquette, Oak Savannah, and Porter Brickyard bicycle trails
