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 will be held on Thursday, May 18, 2017 from 6:30am-7:30am at the Terry Hershey Park gazebo next to the sundial (nearest address is 15332 Memorial Drive).

Stay tuned for more details.
