“Bike to Work Day is tomorrow — a day when Metro joins Commuter Connections, the Washington Area Bicyclist Association and more than 13,000 commuters for a celebration of bicycling as a clean, fun and healthy way to get to work.
This year, Metro will host Bike to Work Day pit stops at Fort Totten, College Park and East Falls Church stations. Riders can stop by the pit stop during the morning at Fort Totten or East Falls Church, or during the evening commute at College Park-U of Md. for free t-shirts and other giveaways, maps, safety tips and a bus bike rack demonstration.
In addition, Metro Transit Police will be at the pitstops, along with King Street and Braddock Road stations, to distribute free U-locks to cyclists who register their bikes. To sign up, or for more information on these and other pit stops, visit biketoworkmetrodc.org.
MTPD will have free U-locks available, while supplies last, at the following locations:
Fort Totten Station – 7 a.m. until 9 a.m.
East Falls Church Station – 7 a.m. until 9 a.m.
Braddock Road Station – 7 a.m. until 9 a.m.
King Street Station – 7 a.m. until 9 a.m.
College Park Station – 4:30 p.m. until 7:30 p.m.
Standard bicycles are permitted on Metrorail at all times except weekdays from 7 to 10 a.m. and 4 to 7 p.m. Folding bikes are permitted at all times.”
