Bike to Work Day Is Here!

May is Bike Month, and in Austin there have been plenty of nice riding days and events to help both experienced and new bike commuters get around on two wheels. The biggest event of Bike Month is coming up soon – Bike to Work Day!

It’s not too late to join in on the Bike to Work Day fun. If you aren’t familiar with Austin bike lanes, you can join Bike Austin’s group rides, which will be led by veteran bike commuters.

Whether you’re riding in a group or going solo, make sure to check out one (or more) of the over 40 fueling stations that will be set up with coffee, snacks, and swag for bike commuters.

And if you don’t have a bike but want to participate by riding to work, Austin B-Cycle can help out: on May 19 all Austin B-Cycle kiosks will give you a free membership with code 519, as long as you redeem it before 11 a.m. If you live too far from work to commute the entire way on your bike, don’t forget that Capital Metro has bike racks on its buses!

Here are some other tips to make Bike to Work Day easy:

And don’t forget about the after party!

There are a lot of great reasons to try an active commute, even if you only do it a few times a week. If you’re an employer or employee who wants to see more support for bike commuting at your workplace, contact us at Movability!
