For those without kids in the schools, Bike to Work Day is May 17. Locals are encouraged to bike to work, even if it’s just for one day, to try out the healthy commute.
Participants in Bike to Work Day can register online to access 115 pit stops throughout the region and link up to commuter convoys.
