Drivers might see more cyclists than usual on the road on Friday as commuters participate in the D.C. area's annual Bike to Work Day. Participants will have bicycle convoys and pit stops to make the trip easier and more fun.
Drivers might see more cyclists than usual on the road on Friday. The weather appears to be cooperating for the D.C. area’s Bike to Work Day 2019.
Unlike last year’s rain, Friday temperatures are expected to be mild in the morning under 70 degrees and a bit toasty for the ride home about 80 degrees.
“We’re looking for 19,000 to 20,000 participants for Bike To Work Day,” said Nicholas Ramfos, director of Commuter Connections. Sprinkled throughout the region, there will be 115 pit stops — 15 more than last year — where cyclists will find giveaways, raffles, water, snacks and entertainment.
