3. You'll Feel Free
“Let me tell you what I think of bicycling. I think it has done more to emancipate women than anything else in the world. It gives women a feeling of freedom and self-reliance. I stand and rejoice every time I see a woman ride by on a wheel…the picture of free, untrammeled womanhood,” Susan B. Anthony once said. #NationalBikeMonth#AtchleyINS#WeCare

1. You'll Wake Up Fresher
A huge Danish study found that those who biked to school tested better than those who hopped in the car or on the bus. The A.M. exercise had an even bigger impact on concentration than a healthy breakfast did. We’re certainly not suggesting skipping the first meal of the day, but waking up in time to do both is your best bet. #NationalBikeMonth#AtchleyINS#WeCare

#ChristmasDisasters Part 5: Your holiday party is a doozy & you punch a guest. Whoops! Your homeowner’s policy won’t protect you if you intend to hurt somebody. Be aware, too that most states have laws that allow social hosts to be held liable if a guest drinks too much & gets in an accident. Be a good host and call a Lyft. #HappyChristmas#HolidayInsurance#TistheSeason#AtchleyINS
