Bike to Work Day: May 18th

Whether you typically commute to work on foot, bicycle, bus, or by car, Bike to Work Day gives you an opportunity to change your routine. In honor of National Bike Month, local bike advocates are organizing a FREE celebration in Burnside Park from 7 to 9 AM on Friday, May 18th. You’ll find free food and coffee, info tables for local organizations, and special guests cheering you on! If you’re interested in riding with a group, join a bike train from your neighborhood.

At the end of the day, ride to Pawtucket for RI Bicycle Coalition’s Bike to Work Afterparty at Breaktime Bowl and Bar. Tickets are $20 for non-members and include bowling, appetizers, a cash bar, and a short speaking program.
