Philly’s 21st Bike To Work Day is May 20, from 8am to 10am.
Bike To Work Day is a morning celebrating bicycling as a fun, sustainable, healthy option for commuting to and from your workplace.
To celebrate, the Coalition has organized several Energizer Stations around the city, a group ride, and a rally/press conference at Philadelphia City Hall later in the morning. While there, we will hear from several city leaders about the importance of bicycling, then present two “Bike-Phriendly Business” awards to worthy local companies in the for- and non-profit sectors.
Hundreds of Philadelphians are expected to participate in this year’s Bike To Work Day.
Biking to work saves time, money, lowers stress, is good exercise and—perhaps most importantly—is fun.
