Save on gas and squeeze in a workout by using one of these bike-share options to get to work.

For obvious reasons, stress in the nation’s capital runs high. And while signing up for the city’s Capital Bikeshare might not be your first thought to reduce anxiety, the share program’s report, released this year, found that 31.5% of nearly 7,000 surveyed members felt less stressed if they cycled to and from work. Capital Bikeshare has 1,950 bikes and 233 stations so you can cruise D.C.’s 57 miles of lanes and 55 miles of trails, worry-free. Plus, via bike, you can forget stop-and-go traffic. As an added bonus: Capital Bikeshare members reported saving an average of $800 annually on travel. That’s enough for an all-inclusive vacation to the Bahamas.

Cost: Annual Membership ($75), Monthly ($25); Daily Key ($10 + $7/day), 3-Day Pass ($15), 24-Hour Pass ($7); capitalbikeshare.com.
