Bike To Work On May 17!

This Friday, May 17 is the 19th annual Bike to Work Day Metro DC. The annual event, which draws thousands of riders each year, celebrates cycling as a fun, eco-friendly, low-cost commuting option, with the goal of having more workers utilize bicycles as a way to get to and from work. The Washington Area Bicyclists Association and Commuter Connections, which organize the event, will provide a variety of resources for new and experienced cyclists, including Bicycle Convoys and a Bicycle Route Finder, where you can plan a bicycle-accessible commute from your home. Throughout the day, Bike to Work Day will host 115 pit stops around the region, where you can access refreshments, giveaways, raffles, and more! Balance is supporting pit stops at Franklin Square and 2400 N Street NW – make sure to come say hi!

Why Bike to Work?

Biking to work is cheaper and healthier than driving to work, is a reliable and viable form of transportation all year round (definitely beats the Metro!) and is better for the environment. Check out Bike To Work Day’s website for more information about the benefits of biking to work, and make sure to try it out on Friday!
