Commuters should swap their cars for bikes this Friday, as Loudoun will participate in the 2012 Bike to Work Day on May 18.
Loudoun County will host two Bike to Work Day “pit stops” where participants can enjoy refreshments and receive prizes and giveaways.
Bike to Work Day is coordinated locally by the Loudoun County Office of Transportation Services and is a regional effort involving the Metropolitan Washington Council of Governments and the Washington Area Bicyclist Association.
Around 400 bicycle commuters visited the local pit stops in Leesburg and Sterling in 2011.
More information about Bike to Work Day, including a link to the online registration form for the event, is available at http://www.loudoun.gov/biketowork.
