About Bike to Work Day

Each year, we celebrate the entire month of May as Bike Month with a special day during the month designated as Bike to Work Day.

Pre-pandemic, Bike to Work Day (BTWD) was a celebration of bicycles as a fun and healthy way to get to work, as well as an opportunity for those who don’t usually bike commute to try it out. It’s also a time to advocate for improved bicycle infrastructure and safety.

During the pandemic and over the last couple of years, the event evolved into Bike to Wherever Days to encourage riders to get out and pedal to do errands, meet friends outdoors, and for some to get to work safely and easily.

Now in 2024, we embrace both events and encourage the community to pedal to do errands, visit friends and family, commute to work, and ride recreationally.
