Bike to Work Day is May 17 (Video)

Commuter Connections and the Washington Area Bicyclist Association are co-sponsoring the region’s annual Bike to Work Day on May 17. Commuters are urged to join thousands of others in the region for a celebration of bicycling as a clean, fun and healthy way to get where you’re going in the morning.

There will be more than 70 pit stops throughout the Washington area, of which 17 will be in Montgomery County. Six of the pit stops will be sponsored by the Montgomery County Department of Transportation, Commuter Services and these include Silver Spring – Discovery, Friendship Heights, Bethesda – Reed Street (Woodmont and Bethesda avenues), North Bethesda, Rockville Town Center and, in partnership with the City of Rockville, Fallsgrove.

Registered participants will receive a free tee shirt and refreshments at the stops and will have the opportunity to enter a raffle for a free bicycle and other prizes.
