New to bicycling commuting or not, this event is fun for all
One of the coolest ways to start your morning is to draft behind a veteran bicycling commuter in the wee dawn hours driving pedals on Bike to Work Day. The reward? Newfound camaraderie, knowing that you actually can bike to work, a pleasingly clear mind and a free breakfast celebration at a gazebo filled with like-minded cyclists, fresh donuts, fruit, yogurt and giveaways.
Whether new to bicycling commuting or an old hand, it doesn’t matter. Bike to Work Day 2015, 6:30 a.m. – 7:30 a.m. Thursday, May 14, will welcome all.
The 11th annual Bike to Work Day is a great time to try a bike commuting route vetted by The Energy Corridor District on rides that start east, west, northwest and south of The Energy Corridor – all led by veteran cycling commuters.
A bike party sweetens the ride’s end at the Terry Hershey Park gazebo, 15200 Memorial Drive next to Langham Creek, where at each District Bike to Work event cyclists enjoy complimentary breakfast, refreshments, music, giveaways, raffle prizes and fun times.
New to biking into work? Sign up for the District’s Bike Buddies here and you’ll be matched with an experienced cyclist from your neck of the woods, or concrete, as the case may be.
