May 21 is Bike to Work Day

Bikers may register at All registrants will be entered in a regional bicycle raffle, and the first 16,000 to register will receive a free T-shirt to be picked up at one of the pit stops.

More than 100 pit stops will be set up all over the region – 20 in Montgomery County. Here is a map of pit stops.

This year’s BTWD will feature non-traditional pit stops due to the COVID-19 protocols. Telecommuters can bike to pick up their free t-shirts at a pit stop. People biking to work can continue to their place of business and telecommuters are encouraged to bike a “fake commute” or take a break during their workday.

Riders are asked to practice safe social distancing and to wear a face covering and helmet while riding.
