Cycling to work offers many advantages to cars and public transit - a morning workout, a pass on traffic, and zero carbon emissions. The last point is especially important given that 40% of Ottawa's carbon emissions are from transportation. And yet, only 2.2% of commuters bike to work.

Whether you are an avid commuter cyclist already or have only begun to consider the possibility, we challenge you to incorporate cycling into your daily commute - but we want it to make sense for you. Here are some goals to consider when making your cycling pledge:

- The test run - commit to commuter cycling for the next month.
- Become a cycling ambassador. Already comfortable cycling to work? Tell your friends. Better yet, bring them with you!
- Try winter biking - make the transition from fair-weather to all-weather.
- Or, create your own!

We need to see more people cycling in Ottawa, and we want to know how you plan to do it. Leave us your name, email and a comment beginning with "I pledge," for example "I pledge to cycle to work two days a week until the first snowfall". Sign our commuter cycling pledge, and commit to a personal goal that makes sense for you.
