Bike to Work Day 2016

      Inspiring first-time riders to spin their wheels and supporting everyday cyclists, the annual Bike to Work Day (BTWD) celebration, held Friday, May 20, encouraged more than 17,000 commuters in the DC Metro area to trade in their four wheels for a bike ride in the sun.

      Commuter Connections, the Washington Area Bicyclist Association and local organizations hosted 83 pit stops throughout DC, Maryland and Virginia with free giveaways, T-shirts and refreshments, plus the chance to win great prizes. goDCgo, a proud sponsor of BTWD, staffed four pit stops, Anacostia-National Park Service, Freedom Plaza, Farragut Square and National Geographic. NEW DC bicycle maps were distributed, bike confessions captured and cyclists mastered placing their bike on the DC Circulator. View our storyboard!

       “I just purchased my first bike on Craigslist. It came without a kickstand but that didn’t stop me! It’s great exercise and it saves so much time – a great alternative to Metro!”
