Ride your Bike to Work Week
Updated: Jun 26, 2019
Flipping our calendars forward from April to May symbolizes that the most enjoyable weather of the year is upon us. So, it is especially fortunate that May is National Bike Month! To honor this healthy, fun and environmentally friendly alternate form of transportation, mark your calendar for the week of May 16-20th so that you can participate in National Bike to Work Week with your coworkers! You are encouraged to log your daily rides on www.columbuscommuterchallenge.org.
The week will conclude on May 20th with Bike to Work with the Mayor Day and CRH Bike to Work Day with Jim Bickel. The Mayor will ride from the St. Bartholomew location, but other community leaders will ride from various locations described below. Please meet at your location by 7:10am so that our community leaders can depart at 7:15am.
