Bike to Work Day 2012

April 12, 2012

Friday, May 18 is Bike to Work Day, a free event for both new and experienced bicycle commuters throughout the Washington metropolitan region. This annual event, sponsored by Commuter Connections and the Washington Area Bicyclist Association, is a great opportunity for people interested in bike commuting to try it with the support of many other bicyclists.

Those who register and attend one of 59 regional pit stops will receive a free Bike to Work Day T-Shirt*, food, drinks, and a chance at winning bicycles or other great raffle prizes. (*T-Shirt supplies are limited to first 11,000 who register). Bicycle commuter convoys led by experienced bicycle commuters will travel throughout the region. All bicyclists are welcome to join the convoys.

Arlington County is hosting three pit stops:

  • Rosslyn (Rosslyn Gateway Park, 1300 Lee Highway)
  • Ballston (FreshBikes Bike Shop, 3924 Wilson Boulevard)
  • Crystal City (Crystal City Water Park, 1750 Crystal Drive

Choose an Arlington Pit Stop for a chance to win a bike!

When you register, choose one of the three Arlington pit stops as "your" pit stop for Bike to Work Day 2012. We'll be doing a random drawing of registrants with the grand prize of a shiny new bike to one lucky rider at each pit stop! Bikes will be from one of the bike shops supporting each stop: Revolution Cycles in Rosslyn, FreshBikes in Ballston, and Revolution Cycles City HUB in Crystal City.

More information about what will be happening at Arlington pit stops is available from BikeArlington.
