Bike To Work Day, 2011

I know I’m a bit late in posting this. Tomorrow is the annual “Bike-to-Work” Day. I’m going to try going to my work in DC tomorrow. I know it will be a fun experiment!

The Bike-to-Work Day is organized by WABA ( the Washington Area Bicyclist Association) and Commuter Connections every year to join thousands of area commuters for a celebration of bicycling as a clean, fun and healthy way to get to work!

WABA’s website says “Meet up with your neighbors at one of 49 regional pit stops, ride to work with an experienced commuter convoy and wear your FREE Bike to Work Day t-shirt at work with pride. Help the Washington region become a better place to ride.”

Bike to Work Day is a FREE event and open to all area commuters.  There will be a raffle prizes, food, drink and more at all pit

There are great resources on the WABA website for route planning. Google Maps also provides directions for traveling by bicycle using bike lanes, trails and route while avoiding hills and traffic!

Also consider joining a commuter convoy from your neighborhood. If you want to explore the mountain with ease, but don’t have a roof rack, these folding moutain bike are ideal.

While planning your route, be sure to stop by pit stops for snacks, waters, high-fives and fun! If this is your first time riding, try a practice run of your route before the big day on the weekend when the roads are quieter.
