Despite the heavy rain, I joined thousands of Washington area commuters in pedaling to work as part of Bike to Work Day 2018. It was held on May 18.


It’s Spring! A Great Time for Cycling, Running, Walking, and Working Out!

Happy Bike to Work Day! I really wish that I could take part in the festivities on the National Institutes of Health (NIH) campus in Bethesda, MD as I have in past years, but NIH-related travel is keeping me away from my trusty bike.

So, let me take a moment to commend all of the enthusiastic cyclists at NIH, along with everyone else out there who’s doing everything you can to get and stay physically fit.  Here at NIH, we are particularly well situated to know the facts: taking charge of your health by participating in an exercise program and eating the right foods is among the most important investments you can make in your future.
