Bike to Work Day (BTWD) is rolling full speed ahead, as a regained sense of community, free T-shirts, and a chance to win a free bicycle will attract thousands of commuters to participate in the regional event on Friday, May 20.
Co-organized by Commuter Connections and the Washington Area Bicyclist Association (WABA), the free, annual event is a celebration of bicycling as a green, low-cost commuting option. This year’s event will feature 96 pit stops throughout Washington, DC, suburban Maryland, and Northern Virginia filled with raffles, food, and other giveaways—plus a free Bike to Work Day T-shirt for the first 15,000 registrants who attend.
New and veteran bicycle commuters alike are encouraged to take the leap and register today. Registering for BTWD 2022 is fast, free, and easy at www.biketoworkmetrodc.org or by calling (800) 745-RIDE.
“It’s time to come together as a community,” said Nicholas Ramfos, Commuter Connections Director. “Bike to Work Day gives us the opportunity to jumpstart our day with a fun, healthy commuting option, all while helping to reduce traffic congestion on roadways that are getting crowded once again.”
For those who wish to travel together, experienced volunteer bicycle commuters will lead bicycle convoys on the day of the event. Convoy starting and ending point information will be available on the event website.
This year’s event has been made possible by the generosity of several regional sponsors, including: Gold Sponsors ICF and UrbanStems; Silver Sponsors National Landing, Bike Arlington, BicycleSPACE, Verra, City Dental DC, and Bilton Law Firm.
Although Bike to Work Day happens only once a year, Commuter Connections offers a wide range of services and resources year-round for all commuters, including the Guaranteed Ride Home (GRH) Program that provides peace of mind with a free ride home when one of life’s unexpected emergencies arises.
