Get Fit Kauai’s Bike-to-Work Day was not just physical exercise. On May 19, the event exemplified exercise in community engagement and partnership. It was a terrific example of one way to incorporate more physical activity into the work day.

Bike to Work Day brought together over 50 state, county, public and private sector employees to participate in an event that benefits island residents while drawing attention to the importance of continued work to improve and expand upon efforts to make Kauai more bike and pedestrian friendly.

By bringing together this diverse group, Get Fit Kauai’s Bike to Work Day established new partnerships and champions of our effort to build a more sustainable and healthy community.
