here is a little information that my brother just shared with me......

Need another good reason to start commuting by bike?

Two bills in the U.S. congress could let you earn as much as $100 per month for riding to work.
The Bicycle Commuter Act would allow an employer to add bicycling to the tax code's definition of "transportation fringe benefit." That's an incentive to get more people to use alternative transportation for commuting -- reducing traffic, pollution and wear on roads.
Under H.R. 807, your employer could grant a monthly cash reimbursement of up to $100 if you pedal to work. The company would get a tax break while you smile all the way to the bank.
The League of American Bicyclists has the legislative details at http://www.bikeleague.org
