Bike to Work Day

Friday, May 18th, is National Bike to Work Day. There are six group rides that are leaving from around the city, all converging on Monroe Park where the Deputy Secretary of Transportation David Tyeryar will speak. The group will then ride down Franklin Street towards the Capital.

The meet-up locations for 2012 are:

Tricycle Gardens

Meet 6:30; Depart 6:45

Manchester – Plant Zero
Tom Bowden, Captain

Yes, it’s early.  But please join us!  This is a great time to reinforce public support for the current initiatives to make Richmond a bike-friendlier city.  If you’d rather just ride on your own to Monroe Park, the speeches etc. will begin at 7:15.
