Exercise is Medicine: The Benefits of Cycling to Work


Renown was a proud supporter of Bike Washoe’s Bike to Work Week activities May 14-18. Watch as some of our leaders brave the roads and learn the benefits of biking to work. 

Biking to work is easier than ever with more bike routes throughout our area. It’s also a healthy, sustainable and economic way to get to the office, helping not only the environment but also your own personal health. 

For National Bike to Work Week, May 14-18, Wendy Damonte, vice president of Advocacy and Community Partnership, and Bethany Sexton, vice president and administrator of the Department of Medicine, hosted a ride for the community from South Reno to downtown Reno, going north on McCarran Boulevard and also taking in the Truckee River bike path. 

The video is also the second in a series of “exercise is medicine” stories that feature Damonte that will be on BestMedicine in the coming weeks.
