You have just a little over a week to get that bike all fixed up and ready, because Bike To Work Day is coming up around the D.C. Metro area next Friday, May 18.
More than 100 pit stops are planned from 6:30 to 9:30 a.m. throughout the area, including one in Reston and one in nearby Herndon.
The Reston pit stop will be held at the Plaza at the Wiehle-Reston East Metro station, at 1862 Wiehle Avenue.
For those who take the W&OD Trail, a pit stop is planned in Herndon right by the trail entrance at the corner of Lynn and Elden streets.
The first 20,000 people who register ahead of time can pick up a free Bike To Work Day 2018 t-shirt at one of the pit stops, as well as enter drawings for new bicycles and other prizes.
Nervous about riding your bike during the busy rush hour by yourself? Anyone is welcome to join a bicycle convoy to ride together with others going in the same direction as you. A list of local convoys is available online, and there is no need to sign up in advance. You can join up with a convoy at any point along their path.
You can also find individual “bike buddies” through a number of local cycling groups.
For more information, visit the Bike To Work Day Metro D.C. website, or for questions about the Reston pit stop, call or email Ashleigh from the Reston Association at [email protected] or 703-435-6577.
