Registration is now open for the region’s annual Bike to Work Day set for Friday, May 21, 2021. Bicycle commuters, as well as those working from home, are encouraged to ride for exercise and mental well-being. New and experienced bicycle riders may register at biketoworkmetrodc.org or by calling 800-745-7433.
Loudoun County will host two physically distanced pit stops where registrants can pick-up free T-shirts. Staggered hours and COVID-19 mitigation policies will be in place, including a face covering requirement. Out of an abundance of caution, refreshments will not be provided, and participants are urged to use the pit stops for T-shirt pick-up only. The Loudoun County pit stops are adjacent to the Washington and Old Dominion (W&OD) Trail in:
- Leesburg at Raflo Park on Harrison Street, 6:00 a.m. - 9:00 a.m.; and
- Sterling, just east of Route 28, at the Sterling Ruritan Club, 183 Ruritan Road, 6:30 a.m. - 9:30 a.m.
Bike to Work Day is coordinated regionally by the Washington Area Bicyclist Association and Commuter Connections. The event is held rain or shine and typically attracts thousands of participants.
The local arrangements are planned by Loudoun County Commuter Services. More information, including a link to register, is available at loudoun.gov/biketowork or by contacting local coordinator Judy Galen at 703-737-8044 or by email.
