Spring weather brings joy to everyone with sunny days and cooler temperatures. While some of us are still teleworking, it is beneficial to take a short break and enjoy the outdoors. May is National Bike Month and it presents an opportunity to encourage your employees to start biking and celebrate events and festivities planned all month long.
Bike to Work Day: Friday, May 21, 2021
Whether you are working from home or headed to the office, join people all over the region to celebrate biking as a safe and convenient way to travel around.
Register and stop by at any of the pitstops to pick up a free t-shirt—while supplies last. Your participation comes with many benefits, like a chance to win a free bike, courtesy of BicycleSPACE. Plus, if your company is enrolled in Champions, promoting this event earns you a Silver Level credit. Contact us for a printed poster or rack cards to promote biking at your organization.
