Imagine starting your Friday with an invigorating morning bike ride, enjoying free coffee and breakfast while listening to jazz. Well your dream can be a possibility!
I am excited to announce the Washington region’s Bike to Work Day 2007! Event co-sponsors, the Metropolitan Washington Council of Governments (MWCOG) and the Washington Area Bicyclist Association (WABA), have designated Friday, May 18th, as Bike to Work Day 2007.
Bike to Work Day is an annual event designed to raise public awareness of the viability of bicycle commuting in the Washington region. To register for this fantastic, fun event, just visit WABA's website. It's that simple!
Arlington Transportation Partners (ATP) is organizing the Rosslyn pit stop in Arlington County as one of twenty-five pit stops throughout the region. The pit stop will be located at Rosslyn's Gateway Park and will offer free food, prizes, and entertainment for participants to enjoy. Barrelhouse Brawl will perform their New Orleans' infused jazz to enliven the crowd. Registered participants will also receive a Bike to Work Day t-shirt and other goodies. Get on the road to a better commute- register today for Bike to Work Day!
And if free food and music aren't enough to tempt you, great prizes, including two bikes, will also be raffled off to registrants. Local bike shops will also be at the event offering maintenance.
More announcements will arrive as this exciting event approaches. Mark your calendar for Friday, May 18TH!
