Get Your Bike Ready for Bike to Work Day

With winter waning, pedal-powered mobility options are kicking into high gear. Bike to Work Day 2016 will be held Friday, May 20. It’s not too early to register online for this fun, annual event online.

Here’s some ways to participate:
  • Bike and Ride: Combine bicycling with a convenient connector trip on Ride On or Metrobus. All buses have easy-to-use bike racks mounted over their bumper. Check out these tips on using your bike with RideOn and/or with Metrobus and Metrorail.
  • Bikesharing: If commuting from home to work isn't a realistic option for you, there’s another option. Enjoy biking for a work break, exercise or to run errands thanks to a growing number of Capital Bikeshare stations around the County. The latest addition was a new station at the Medical Center Metro in Bethesda. Using Bikeshare is easy, too. Check out this video.
Anytime you bike, be sure to bike smartly. Bicyclists and motorists share the road, so show each other mutual respect and be alert to traffic signals and lane changes.
