Bike to Work Day 2015 - Registration Now Open!
 
Registration is open for for Bike to Work Day 2015!

This year's event will take place on Friday, May 15 from 6:30 - 8:30 a.m. at Reed street, across from Barnes and Noble in Downtown Bethesda.

As you may recall, Bike to Work Day 2014 was one of the rainiest, and windiest, and coldest in memory, but that didn't stop 160 brave folks from passing through the Downtown Bethesda event!

We had plenty of food and prizes, but, most importantly, we had shelter from the rain in the Capital Crescent Trail tunnel and we had hot coffee provided by Abt Associates.

Several elected officials braved the storm to speak to the cyclists gathered, including our returning emcee, Maryland State Delegate Ariana Kelly!

2014's program included Proclamations from the State Comptroller, Montgomery County and the State of Maryland. The complete list of speakers included:
  • Comptroller Peter Franchot
  • MD State Delegate Susan Lee
  • William Hwang, Deputy Assistant Secretary for Transportation Policy and Freight, Maryland Department of Transportation
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). The Downtown Bethesda Pit Stop is organized by Bethesda Transpotation Solutions.

Bicycle Commuter Spirit Awards

Delegate Kelly presented Bethesda’s 10th Annual Bicycle Commuter Spirit Awards. This year’s winners were Holly Chase and Rod Hannon. Both winners showed tenacious spirit and dedication in their long years of bike commuting in all types of weather.

Sponsors and Event Partners - We Need Your Support!

Our event partners and sponsors help to make the Downtown Bethesda event so great, which is why our Bike to Work Day Pit Stop is the third largest in the region and the largest in the state of Maryland! When there isn't a monsoon, the Downtown Bethesda Pit Stop sees over 500 cyclists pass trough. And when there was driving rain and wind, our event was one of the few in the region to take shelter and carry on, hosting 160 dedicated cyclists!

We are looking for 2015 event partners and sponsors. Business can donate prizes for our raffle, or cash for refreshments. We also have vendor spaces available at the event!
