May 21 is the official Bike to Work Day, so we thought it would be helpful to provide a collection of resources in Downtown Bellevue to help make your new bike commute a breeze. Have you ever felt like Jim from The Office in the video below? Jim began biking to work to save money, stay in shape, and help the environment, but he didn’t like arriving to work covered in sweat.
