WOODBRIDGE, VA – Cyclists in Prince William County will get an extra incentive to ditch the bike and commute in the fresh air during the next Bike to Work Day.

The annual Bike to Work Day will be held on Friday, May 17 by the Commuter Connections and the Washington Area Bicyclist Association. More than 100 locations in DC and the Virginia and Maryland suburbs are offering pit stops with freebies.

“The goal of the program is to increase awareness of the opportunities to reduce one-person commutes and therefore reduce carbon emissions,” said Bryce Barrett, principal planner at the Prince William County Department of Transportation. “The event also encourages other alternatives, such as teleworking, walking or public transport.”

Cyclists can register for Bike to Work Day and receive free giveaways, food and drinks at their chosen pit stop. Freebies are available while supplies last.
