For the 17th straight year, Metro will be participating in Bike to Work Day (Thursday, May 19) as part of Bike Week LA from May 16 through May 20. The events take place in May, but you can gear up for Bike Week by signing up now for the following programs:
- Pledge to ride on Bike to Work Day. By signing up through the California Bicycle Coalition, you show that cyclists count. You will also be entered for a chance to win some great prizes.
- Commuting Awards: Get around by bike? Nominate yourself or your friends and colleagues for an award. Metro will be rewarding those who take the longest and hilliest commutes as well as those who have demonstrated a commitment to getting around without the use of a car. Just fill out the online form between now and the end of April.
- The Bike Buddies program on Bike to Work Day gives inexperienced cyclists the opportunity to ride with cycling veterans. If you are interested in getting some on-road experience, or you are an experienced cyclist who wants to help out, please register on our website.
Both fun and healthy, riding your bike is a great way to get around and avoid the pains of traffic and paying for gas. For more information about Bike Week, please visit our website.
