In conjunction with Hupy and Abraham, S.C.’s “Watch For Cycles” campaign, the firm is sponsoring “National Bike to Work Week” May 10-17, 2014.Brochure on your guide to safety for bicycles

During this weeklong celebration, everyone is encouraged to ride their bicycle to work instead of driving a car. Biking to work has its fair share of benefits. It’s cheaper than paying for gas and it’s great exercise.  And when someone chooses to bike to work instead of drive, it means one less car is on the road which is good for traffic flow and the environment.

In addition to people getting morning and afternoon workouts, “National Bike to Work Week” also provides fun activities for everyone. For example, Vulture Space, a local Milwaukee bike shop, is organizing the “Milwaukee Community Bicycle Project” in an effort to get more people to ride bikes.  Throughout the week, great events are planned at Great Lakes Distillery, Juneau Park, Urban Ecology Center and Anodyne Coffee among other places.  In addition, Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett is personally participating in “National Bike to Work Week” by hosting his own ride that is open to the public. Mayor Barrett will be joined by Aldermen Michael Murphy and Nik Kovac on his special ride.

Hupy and Abraham, S.C. is proud to support “National Bike to Work Week” and encourages people to be active. In addition to supporting bicycle awareness, the firm has also run campaigns to encourage people to be more mindful of pedestrians and motorcyclists.  Get out and be safe.
