Bike to Work Day in Washington, DC

By

Each May thousands of Washington, DC commuters participate in Bike to Work Day, an annual celebration sponsored by the Washington Area Bicyclist Association and Commuter Connections to encourage bicycling as a “clean, fun and healthy way to get to work.” The organizations set up pit stops around the region that offer breakfast, entertainment, safety tips and chances to win bicycles and other prizes. Volunteers lead groups to downtown, DC to assist with safety and helping commuters find the best route. Bike to Work Day is held rain or shine.
