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.
This year's Bike to Work Day celebration was held on Thursday, May 14, 2015 from 6:30am-7:30am at the Terry Hershey Park gazebo at 15342 Memorial Drive (next to the sundial).
