Bike to Work Day

The Energy Corridor District hosts a Bike to Work event each May during National Bike to Work Month.  The event is a great way to introduce bike commuting to new riders and recognize those that bike to work on a regular basis.

Designated Bike Champions cycle with groups along popular routes to the celebration at Terry Hershey Park where participants can enjoy a complimentary breakfast, music, giveaways, and raffle prizes. Click the map icon to the right to view this year's routes.*

This year's Bike to Work Day celebration was held on Thursday, May 19, 2016 from 6:30am-8:00am at the Terry Hershey Park gazebo at 15342 Memorial Drive (next to the sundial).

A huge thank you to all of our generous sponsors for making this year's Bike to Work Day a successful event! Stay tuned for details on next year's event.
