Bike to Work Day: Friday, May 19th

Rethink your ride, and commute to work by bike! Join fellow cyclists in Burnside Park from 7-9 AM on Friday, May 19th to celebrate Bike to Work Day! Be part of a bike train into downtown from several city neighborhoods, and find free food, coffee, community information, and special guests welcoming you when you arrive.

This special event is part of national Bike to Work Month, and the RIPTA Commuter Resource RI program’s inaugural Bike to Work Week. Commuter Resource RI works year round to educate the public about riding RIPTA and other modes of public transportation while also supporting alternatives such as carpools, vanpools, and biking.
