The Dion Marketing team is pledging to bike to work every Friday to kick off our new initiative Bike the Beaches. #ActiveFriday, just one of the components of Bike the Beaches, is a healthy mental start to a productive day. As a team we’ve found that biking to work allows us to integrate the simple feeling of exhilaration into our daily grind and allows us to immerse ourselves into our Beach community that we love, work and play.
Cycling improves aerobic fitness, lowers blood pressure and boosts you energy during your daily commute. Sneaking the health benefits into your daily routine allows you to skip the gym with a fun alternative.
Biking brings back memories of your childhood, when things were carefree. Observe your surroundings, take in the morning light and wave at passing cyclists as you ride. Soon enough, you’ll find your overall mood boosted!
A productive day beings with simplicity. There is no denying that traffic congestion puts a damper on your day, especially during rush hour. Take away the stress of not finding a parking spot or getting stuck in a roadblock on your way to work.
The only energy source required to move you from home to work is you. Bikes are a smart transport method that don’t involve polluting our environment. Your carbon footprint on a bike is nonexistent.
Biking allows you to begin your day with an open mind. Go the extra mile and aspire to inspire others along your ride.

Initiative encourages move toward two-wheeled commutes
Casual Friday for the employees of Dion Marketing means tennis shoes and athletic gear — the only suitable attire for a recently launched initiative to “Bike the Beaches” on their way to and from work once weekly.
Coined “Active Friday” by the Dion Marketing team, the pledge encourages the group to start the day with a healthy activity and a positive attitude. However, it is just one component of their new initiative. Bike the Beaches works to integrate bike riding into daily life at the beach for transportation, recreation and physical exercise, according to the company. The ultimate goal, said Julie Dion, president of Dion Marketing, is to get other Beaches businesses involved.
