Join in the 17th annual Bike to Work and School Day on Friday, May 16.
Whether or not the weather is nice (the National Weather Service predicts temperatures in the 70s), Whatcom County kids and adults are invited to hop on those pedals and cycle to work or school.
Last year more than 9,000 people participated.
Along the way, Smart Trips and everybodyBIKE have organized Celebration Stations with raffles for prizes such as gift certificates and bike gear, free treats and drinks, and cheering crowds to help make the trip even better. The stations will be open from 6:30 to 9:30 a.m.
Some stations will offer their own prizes, including the Cordata location of the Bellingham Community Food Co-Op, which will give away blinking safety lights to all cyclists (while supplies last) to increase visibility on the road in honor of a co-worker still recovering after he was hit by a truck while cycling home from work in March.
Participants can also wear their participation stickers all day to get discounts from local stores.
