Friday is the DC region’s 16th annual Bike to Work Day. It’s a great opportunity to build a few extra minutes into your commute to stop at one of over 80 commuting “pit stops” on your way to (or from) work.
An interactive map of the Bike to Work Day 2016 pit stops.
The pit stops offer refreshments, raffles, and free t-shirts to those who register. Each pit stop has something a little different: elected officials and entertainment will be at some, and some will be open in the afternoon for your commute home.
Last year’s Bike to Work Day in our region attracted over 17,000 participants. With Metro’s SafeTrack starting soon, bicycling will be an important commuting alternative for some people. If you’ll be impacted by SafeTrack and are considering bicycling as an alternative, Friday is a great day to get out there and test your route!
