National Bike to Work Day This Friday

Posted By on Tue, May 14, 2013 at 3:02 PM

Commuting can be a solitary enterprise, the bike kind no less than the car-bound variety. But on National Bike to Work Day, you can rally in two-wheeled solidarity with your fellow working-stiff cyclists.

Local organizer BikePGH is sweetening the pot with a dozen Hydration Stations from Downtown to the East End. Each station features “breakfast beverages” (hmm, wonder what those could be?), snacks and swag bags stuffed with bike-related goodies.

Even if you don’t bike to work every single day, Bike to Work Day lets you show your support for safer streets and a more bike-friendly Pittsburgh.

Bike to Work Day also kicks off Car Free Fridays season, when BikePGH encourages us to set aside one day a week to leave the internal combustion engine at the curb.

BikePGH is also touting its I Bike, I Walk, I Vote campaign as well as the National Bike Challenge. In the latter, cities and individuals compete to see who can log the most trips and miles in commuting and recreation.
