Bike to WorkDay is this Friday!
On Friday, May 16, 2014, there will be 79 pit stops all over Maryland, Virginia and the District of Columbia where cycling commuters can stop for refreshments, entertainment, and giveaways! Free t-shirts will be given out at the pit stops to the first 14,000 who register and attend.
Herndon, Virginia Bike to Work Pit Stop
Here is some information from the Herndon Parks and Recreation Department about the Herndon, Virginia pit stop on the Town Hall green, right near the Abrams Landau office at the corner of Station and Center Streets:
To those of you already registered for this year’s Bike to Work Day, on Friday, May 16th, welcome back! For those still considering it, please do so soon to be assured of receiving one of the highly desirable B2WD t-shirts.
Herndon’s pit stop on the Town Hall green is open from 5:30-10 a.m. and thanks to A-1 Cycling, we’ll be back out there for the evening ride from 4-6:30 p.m.
Commuter Connections and the Washington Area Bicyclist Association (WABA) anticipate registration will again break records with both new and experienced cyclists taking to the streets to promote bicycling to work as a fun, healthy, environmentally friendly, and low cost alternative to drive alone commuting. Cyclists can join “commuter convoys” with experienced cyclists leading the way. And they can pedal to any of the 79 pit stops across the National Capital Region where refreshments, entertainment and giveaways will be part of the celebration. Cyclists can register, find pit stop locations and learn how to join a commuter convoy at www.biketoworkmetrodc.org.
