Here is another reason why you might want to hop on that bike or walk to work.
Areas of the country where more people bike or walk to work tend to have lower obesity rates.
That is according to a new report from the Alliance for Biking and Walking.
Memphis and Detroit had the highest levels of obesity and also had low bicycling and walking rates.
Likewise San Francisco and Oakland, California had the lowest obesity rates and a large percentage of commuters happen to walk or bike to work.
