Bike to Work and School Day  May 16, 2014

Join hundreds of people biking to work in Tompkins County on Friday,

May 16 for the 4th annual Bike to Work and School Day, and find out

first-hand why commuting by bike is fun, energizing, and a sustainable

way to get where you need to go!

You’ll be treated to a free breakfast at any of the fourteen Bike to

Work and School Stations from 7am -10am in Ithaca and Tompkins County.

You can also enter to win prizes provided by Cayuga Ski and Cyclery,

the Bike Rack and Ithaca Carshare.

Don’t live downtown? No problem! This year, we’ve expanded to include

NEW breakfast stations in the towns of Dryden, Brooktondale, Danby and

Trumansburg. Plan your route and pick a station by going to Cooperative Extension's

Bike to Work page. Don't forget that each TCAT bus is equipped with a bike rack!

For more fun, plan to meet a friend for breakfast at a Bike to Work and School station!

Bike to Work and School day is part of several local events

celebrating National Bike Month. These events are part of the

community wide effort to improve conditions and awareness of bicycling

as a viable means of transportation:  a green, clean, healthy and

beautiful way to get around. Choose your Bike to Work and School

Station, invite your friends and join the fun!
