Some of you may have read my post on the Muscle Powered blog about Bike to Work Week. We will be getting together sometime in the coming week to start discussing this event. Right now it looks like Wednesday the 13th, sometime after work (time and location TBA). If you’re interested in in participating in Bike To Work Week, you are encouraged to attend. I’d like to start brainstorming ideas and promotions now, so we’ll have plenty of time to contact businesses and get materials together.
I found the following information about Bike to Work Week on the The League of American Bicyclists website.
May is National Bike Month – The League of American Bicyclists is promoting Bike-to-Work Week from May 12-16 and Bike-to-Work Day on Friday, May 16.
There is a wonderful set of resources on the LAB site as well, including:
- National Bike Month Organizer’s Kit
- Sample Bike Month Proclamation
- Bike to Work Commuter’s Booklet
- BikeEd Brochure
- Bicycle Friendly Communities Brochure
- Web Banners
- National Strategies for Advancing Bicycle Safety
After I talk to a few more people this weekend, I’ll get the details of time and place up on the blog. Stay tuned…
