Did you know Friday, May 21, is Bike to Work Day?
No, this isn’t another holiday the internet invented (though we don’t hate National Pizza Day). Bike to Work Day is a D.C. area holiday that’s been around for 20 years now.
Here’s how it works: On Friday, May 21, strap on your helmet and bike to work. If you’re still working from home, you can still hop on your bike for a little cruise.
Along the way, stop by one of the 95 pit stops set up in D.C., Maryland and Virginia, and grab your Bike to Work Day T-shirt. (Masks are required.) Then, on you go to work — or back home!
Bike alone or feel free to grab your co-worker, friend or work-from-home buddy and have them ride along.
This is also a great way to celebrate Mental Health Awareness Month. You’ll get to enjoy the springtime temps and stretch your legs — all while reaping the mental health benefits of exercise.
The event is free, and if you pre-register by May 14 and attend, you get a free T-shirt (while supplies last) and bike raffle entry.
Bike to Work Day is funded by DDOT, MDOT, VDOT and USDOT.
