Tired of sitting in traffic each day during the morning rush? Keep forgetting to fill up your gas tank the night before work? Luckily, there's a bit of relief in sight, because it's Bike to Work Week! Originated by the The League of American Bicyclists as a part of National Bike Month, the next five days are dedicated to encouraging employees to ditch their four-wheel ride for a two-wheel one to ensure the trek to work includes some serious calorie burning. If you're not interested in peddling down the street in a suit, there are some pretty cool activewear shops around metro Atlanta that'll still have you riding in style.
