DUE TO COVID-19, BIKE TO WORK DAY 2021 WILL AGAIN BE A WEEK-LONG VIRTUAL EVENT.
It’s Bike Month! This year’s annual Bike to Work Central Maryland week celebration will take place Monday, May 17th through Sunday, May 23rd and will again be a socially distanced cycling challenge to encourage commuting by bike. Registration is now open.
Participating riders qualify for free t-shirts (limited to the first 1,500 riders), giveaways and prizes, all while discovering the advantages of a cleaner, healthier commuting option. Participants who register for the event may ride any time during the week to anywhere and pick up their event shirt and other giveaways at participating bike shops including Race Pace Bicycles in Columbia and Ellicott City and Patapsco Bicycles in Maple Lawn. In addition to Race Pace, special thanks to our local sponsors the Downtown Columbia Partnership and the Regional Transportation Agency of Central Maryland (RTA) for helping make this event possible.
To make Bike Month even more fun, we are offering cyclists a free online cycling challenge and encouragement program called Love to Ride. This fun, friendly and free competition between workplaces, clubs and individuals uses prize drawings, leaderboards and virtual networking to challenge users to get more people cycling. The program is year-round and features special prize challenges in May for Corporate Challenge participants.
Interested but don’t have a bike? Try Howard County Bikeshare in Downtown Columbia and Ellicott City.
