Bacon: Motivation To Ride To Work!

Rain or shine, nearly every time I've ever ridden my bike to work, I'm always glad I did. What a great way to start the day! Whilst riding to work, you're treated to fresh air, exercise, become intimately familiar with the happenings of the area, reduce your environmental footprint, and save money! Wow, after looking at that list, you'd have to be crazy to not ride to work every single day!

However, in reality, we all know that sometimes it is difficult to get out of bed in the morning or to step outside into the cold. How can you motivate yourself to get out there? A nice bike helps. Riding with a friend or group helps. Having a broken down car forces you to... What else...

BACON! That's right, bacon! At QBP, which has been my employer for the past 5 years, they have a very robust commuter program to encourage people to commute via bicycle. But guess what guarantees that hundreds of people will commute in on their bikes rain or shine - Bacon!

So next time you're feeling down before your morning commute, pull on your riding shorts, and find yourself some bacon!

Note: Cyclova XC appreciates vegetarianism and veganism but most of us could never do it. With that said, vegans may substitute an appropriate protein and season it with Bacon Salt as a source of commuting motivation.
