This Friday, if you bike to work, you won’t be alone. In fact, over 10,000 people will be participating in DC’s annual Bike to Work Day, happening from 7-9 a.m. The event is sponsored by Commuter Connections and the Washington Area Bicyclist Association and registration is free!
Commute a long distance to work? Fear not, because “Pit Stop” events will be held throughout the region in Maryland and Virginia, as well as several locations in DC, including Eastern Market and Farragut Square (you can find a complete listing of the DC locations here). At these stops, you’ll find refreshments, breakfast treats, t-shirts, raffle prizes and more.
Looking for a riding buddy? Check out the Washington Area Bike Forum to find a possible partner.
If you’re a first time participant, be sure to check out this page. And, if you want to participate but don’t have a bike, Bike and Roll will offer complimentary comfort hybrid rentals for this event. More information can be found on the “first time” participants page.
Bike to work day will be held rain or shine, and as of right now, it looks like shine!
