Register Now for Bike-to-Work Day on Friday, May 21, 2021

 

Bike-to-Work Day (BTWD) Metro DC is traditionally held on the third Friday in May.  For the past 20 years, the event has been organized and promoted annually throughout the metropolitan Washington DC region by the Washington Area Bicyclist Association and the Metropolitan Washington Council of Governments’ (MWCOG) Commuter Connections program.

The event celebrates bicycling as a viable commuting  mode and encourages all commuters to try bicycling for all–or for just one segment–of their work commute trip .  Teleworkers are also welcome to participate, by bicycling to one of the roughly 90 BTWD rally locations (known as ‘pit stops’) throughout the Washington region and then bicycling home for their workday.

As most people know, bicycling is healthy, clean, economical, and fun.  Bicycle commuting is energy efficient, reduces traffic and parking congestion,  improves air quality, increases employee morale and productivity, and can lower employer healthcare costs.

Register for Bike-to-Work Day now, so you don’t miss out on the fun (and BTWD swag).

Bike to Work Day was canceled in 2020 due to COVID-19 concerns, but it ‘s back this year, with some COVID precautions in place at each BTWD pit stop.

This year,  seven Bike-to-Work Day pit stops will be held throughout the Prince William area.  At these locations, participants can pick up a BTWD t-shirt, water bottle, and snacks.  Participants should register online in advance and  show up at their selected pit stop at their scheduled check-in time with a mask on and maintain social distancing.

Click on the links below to learn the exact locations, hours of operation, and contacts for the seven Prince William area pit stops.

Bike-to-Work Day proclamations have been issued this year by the National Capital Region Transportation Planning Board, by the Prince William Board of County Supervisors, and by the Manassas City Council.

In the United States, the League of American Bicyclists established National Bike Week (now National Bike Month) in 1956, emulating an event begun in the United Kingdom in 1923.  The Washington Area Bicyclist Association organized DC-based Bike-to-Work Day events on Earth Day (April 22) for several decades until MWCOG’s Commuter Connections program adopted BTWD Metro DC as a region-wide event.
