Cities, organizations and individuals all over the country will celebrate through organized events and solitary rides. If, like me, you're lucky enough to work from home, then biking to work isn't necessary. Conversely, if you live a long way from your workplace, biking to work may not be feasible.

It's thought that the main reason for this decrease is the decline in the use of hormone therapy after menopause.
