Thanks to Bluebikes title sponsor Blue Cross Blue Shield of Massachusetts, riders can get outside and experience the full benefits of biking with a free Adventure Pass on October 10th. Here’s what you need to know about the initiative
FREE ADVENTURE PASSES ON WORLD MENTAL HEALTH DAY, COURTESY OF BLUE CROSS
Outdoor exercise like biking is proven to positively impact mental health. One survey found that 75% of people noticed improved mental health after taking up biking and 45% noticed improved sleep, which can help reduce anxiety and depression. As we approach World Mental Health Day on Sunday, October 10, Blue Cross Blue Shield of Massachusetts is shining a spotlight on health and wellness through its title sponsorship of Bluebikes.
Throughout the day, Metro Boston residents and visitors can take advantage of free, two-hour Bluebikes rides by downloading and opening the Bluebikes app on a mobile device and selecting “Get a Pass.” This is the second consecutive year that Blue Cross, the state’s largest health plan, is sponsoring complimentary rides on World Mental Health Day.
