Alexandria residents will be among the thousands of area commuters who celebrate Bike to Work Day by cycling to work and participating in special events around Alexandria and throughout the region.

Bike to Work Day is free and open to all commuters, but registration is required. The first 20,000 cyclists who register will receive a free t-shirt and be entered in a regional raffle to win a variety of prizes, including a new bicycle.

Bike to Work Day is part of Bike Everywhere Month, the City’s month-long celebration of cycling and cyclists. Other activities include Bike to School Day on May 9 and a variety of rides happening around Alexandria during the month.

Participants can register at biketoworkmetrodc.org for activities at one of five Alexandria “pit stops:”

The City-sponsored pit stop at Market Square will feature giveaways, free refreshments, a chance to win prizes donated by local businesses and sponsors, and a DASH bus that cyclists can use to practice loading and unloading their bikes.

All registrants will receive a free water bottle, T-Shirt, foo, and drink. Registrants will also be eligible to win raffle prizes and will have a chance to win a FREE BIKE and other great prizes at the pit stops!
