May is National Bike Month and Friday, May 20 is Bike to Work Day. Commuter Connections, the Washington Area Bicyclists Association (WABA) and local governments including Fairfax County, will host the 21st annual event. Even if you are working from home, get exercise by biking to a T-shirt Pickup Point (pit stop) and then back home to work for the day.
This year, there are more than 100 pit stops around the region, 17 of which are in Fairfax County. To participate in Bike to Work Day, register at http://www.biketoworkmetrodc.org/, then make sure to swing by a pit stop for your T-shirt. Please note, T-shirts are reserved for the first 15,000 who register.
Fairfax County is Sponsoring 2 Pit Stops!
At the Government Center(above) and the Chantilly Regional Library. Come see us!

The benefits of being a bicycle-friendly business include a healthier workforce, lower healthcare costs and a positive recruitment message; a greener environment and less-congested roads; and recognition opportunities. From facilities and policies to promotion and rewards, creating a bicycle culture starts with strong planning. FCDOT's Bike Fairfax Program have assembled a Business Toolkit to host a successful Bike to Work Day event and help grow bicycle commuting all year round.
