Wait, what is ‘Bike to Work Day’?

May 18th is officially BIKE TO WORK Day in Austin and this year marks the 56th anniversary of Bike to Work Day, started by the League of American Bicyclists.  The month of May has also been officially designated as National Bike Month.

The special event has been adopted nationwide and is meant to inspire people to ditch their gas-guzzlers and meet fellow commuters along the way to work.  The 2012 Austin Bike to Work Day is looking to be the largest yet and there will be dozens of Morning and Afternoon commuting stations for participants to rest, enjoy refreshments and snacks, and meet fellow commuters and local bike-friendly businesses.
