Gear Up for Bike to Work Day with Rockville 11

The May 20 Celebration of Bike Month Features Two City-Sponsored Pit Stops

Rockville, Maryland, May 12 – Biking is fun and can make life simple. Why not take your foot off the gas pedal for a day and pedal away for Bike to Work Day, from 6:30-9 a.m. on Friday, May 20?

There will be two city-sponsored pit stops:

  • In front of Dawson’s Market, 255 N. Washington St., in Rockville Town Square.
  • In the Smoothie King parking lot of Fallsgrove Village Center, at 14941 Shady Grove Road.

Stop by for a free light breakfast, coffee and a free T-shirt and enter a raffle for prizes, including a new bicycle. Learn more and register at www.biketoworkmetrodc.org.

In recent years, Rockville has marked Bike to Work Day by stoking a friendly rivalry with the City of Frederick, to see which city can draw more bike riders. This year the rivalry ratchets up a notch as the two cities try to top each other at getting the word out about the benefits of biking.

Check out Rockville’s entry, a Rockville 11-produced promo that will get you geared up and ready to ride, at http://goo.gl/forms/PWOcA9gkvd. Then, cast your vote for Rockville’s submission.

The city’s YouTube channel also offers a new series of safety tips for bicyclists, pedestrians and motorists. Find them by searching “safety tips” at www.rockvillemd.gov/youtube, or catch them throughout May on Rockville 11.
