Bike To Work Week

As part of “National Bike Month,” this week is Bike-to-Work Week. May 15th has been designated as “Bike-to-Work Day.”

We’d encourage you all to participate in “Bike-to-Work Day,” if not the entire week. It’s going to be nice most of the week and the mild weather will make for a great introduction to commuting via bicycle.

The League of American Bicyclists has an introduction to commuting by bike that can be a helpful reference for first-time commuters. The City of Grand Rapids also has a map of suggested bike routes and an infosheet containing information on area bike laws. The League of Michigan Bicyclists also has a booklet titled “What Every Michigan Bicyclist Should Know” that offers more helpful resources.

There will also be a group photo taken by the City of Grand Rapids for Bike to Work Day participants. The photo will be taken at Calder Plaza in downtown Grand Rapids at 7:00am on the 15th.
