On Friday, May 18 from 6:30-9:30 a.m., Comstock Partners and Reston Association will host more than 500 local commuters at the Wiehle-Reston East Metro Station as part of the one of the nation's largest Bike to Work Day events, one organized at the regional level by Commuter Connections and the Washington Area Bicyclist Association (WABA).
The Reston pit stop will be one of 100 pit stops throughout the District of Columbia, suburban Maryland and Northern Virginia. All stops have the same goal according to event organizers: "to increase awareness and participation in bicycling as a method of transportation to work instead of driving alone."
Celebrating its 17th anniversary this year, Bike to Work Day is expected to once again break registration records as more and more commuters embrace bicycling as a clean, fun, and healthy way to get to work.
The event page states: "Be one of the first 20,000 to register and attend this free event, then bike to your choice of 100 pit stops in D.C., MD, and VA and receive a free T-shirt, refreshments, and be entered into a raffle for a new bicycle."
