Thousands of Washington area bicyclists are expected to take part — last year’s Bike to Work Day drew about 11,000 participants and this year event is expected to be even bigger, according to organizers.
The event, now in its 11th year, is designed to promote traffic- and pollution-reduction as well as exercise.
But if helping the environment while improving one’s health isn’t enough to get people out of cars, Commuter Connections is also offering a day-long program of food, entertainment and prizes at 58 pit stops throughout the District, Maryland and Virginia.
Commuter Connections offers tips for first-time riders as well as seasoned cyclists interested in participating.
And Dr. Gridlock’s Robert Thomson shared this advice for drivers who see an influx of bikes on the roads this Friday.
