Bike to Work Day
Bike To Work Day 2008
Friday, May 16, 2008 is "Bike to Work Day". Join thousands of area commuters for a celebration of bicycling as a clean, fun, and healthy way to get to work. This regional event is organized by Commuter Connections and the Washington Area Bicyclist Association (WABA). Meet up with fellow riders, stop by one of 24 regional pit stops, and convoy to work.
In Fairfax County there are six pit stops: Reston, Fairfax Corner/Government Center, Vienna, Fairfax City/GMU, Tyson's, and Springfield. Pit stops will provide snacks and drinks, offer free bicycle tune-ups, raffles for prizes, and a chance to meet fellow riders.
Last year, we had close to 900 registered bikers in Fairfax County. This year, we know we can do better. So, have some fun, save fuel, help the environment, get some exercise and bike to work. To register for "Bike to Work Day", visit www.waba.org or telephone (202) 518-0524. Registered riders will receive a 2008 Bike to Work Day T shirt.
