Bike to Work Day – Friday May, 20th


Dump the pump! Avoid waiting for a bus or metro train! Why not bike to work? Next Friday, May 20th, the Washington Area Bicyclist Association and Commuter Connections are hosting Bike to Work Day (BTWD). BTWD is an event that celebrates bicycling as a clean, fun, healthy way to get to work! There will be a total of 49 pit stops throughout the region where riders can stop to take a break, meet neighbors, get a free Bike to Work Day 2011 tee shirt, and refresh before finishing their ride to work.

The Capitol Hill BID is partnering with Capitol Hill Bikes to provide a pit stop in the Capitol Hill neighborhood! The pit stop will be located outside of the Eastern Market Metro station from 6:30am until about 8:30am. We will be handing out free BTWD tee shirts to registered participants along with snacks to re-energize riders! Capitol Hill Bikes will be on hand to pump tires and provide information about their store on 8th Street, SE.
