'Bike to Work Day' is making a return to the D.C. region next month.
The region is celebrating 'Bike to Work Day' in an effort to promote bicycling to work as a fun, healthy, environmentally friendly, and low-cost alternative to drive-alone commuting.
The event, organized by Commuter Connections and the Washington Area Bicyclist Association, drew more than 11,000 participants last year.
Cyclists can join what are called "commuter convoys" that provide leadership from experienced cyclists. Dozens of pit stops will be set up to offer refreshments, entertainment and giveaways.
The event is on Friday, May 18, and both new bicycling commuters and experienced bikers are welcome.
