Bike to Work Day

2016's Downtown Bethesda Bike to Work Day event was held on the most beautiful day in three weeks, which, considering we'd had record breaking rain for as many weeks, sets a pretty low bar. But we had nearly 500 cyclists take advantage of the weather and check into the event!

Bike to Work Day 2017 will be held on Friday, May 19, 2017, from 6:30-9:00 AM on Reed Street, at the corner of Bethesda and Woodmont Avenues in Downtown Bethesda.

Registration is now open!

This event could never be so successful without the support and involvement of our local business community. Bike to Work Day is a regional event organized by Commuter Connections (a division of the Metropolitan Washington Council of Governments) and the Washington Area Bicyclists Association (WABA).

In addition to Bike to Work Day on May 19, we will be holding two events prior the main event in conjunction with Silver:

CANCELED: Thursday, May 11 from 11:30 until 1:30, stop by Veteran's Park in the Woodmont Triangle for transit information and free refreshments from Silver! BTS staff will also be on hand to answer your bike commuting questions.

Friday, May 12, from 6:30 until 8:30 a.m., we will be at the wayside on the Capital Crescent Trail near Bethesda Avenue, once again with Silver providing free coffee and breakfast!

These two events are held at the mercy of Mother Nature, so if it's raining, we will not be there.

Bike to Work Day on May 19 will be held rain-or-shine!

The Downtown Bethesda Pit Stop is organized by Bethesda Transportation Solutions.
