BIke to Work Day is May 1

May 1, 2018 - 7:00am to 10:00am

Bike to Work Day is an annual event that celebrates those who ride a bicycle. Whether you commute to work by bike every single day or just want to give it a try for the first time this year, this event celebrates you! This is the one day each year that our region formally recognizes bicycling as an everyday form of transportation. ​

On May 1, we challenge you to bike to work or class, and in return, we will provide stations and snacks and encouragement along the way. Registration for Bike to Work Day includes a free t-shirt that you can pick up at any of our stations.

Find a station near your home or workplace on the map on the bottom of the Bike To Work Day webpage. In 2018, there will be 12 stations throughout Urbana-Champaign.
