The Baltimore Metropolitan Council (BMC) is excited to celebrate the 24th annual Bike to Work event. Due to the COVID-19 public health emergency, this event is going virtual! Pick up a free t-shirt from one of the bike shops in the region and share your photos and stories on social and Love to Ride Central MD.
Bike to Work Week (B2WW) is an event celebrated across the United States each May to encourage and celebrate bicycling to work and promote public awareness of bicycling and bicycle safety.
In the Baltimore region, B2WW also promotes a “clean commute” and is part of BMC’s efforts to improve air quality. Late Spring is the start of the ground-level ozone season when we hear about Code Red and Orange Ozone Action Days. On those days, the air is dangerous to breathe – especially for the young and for the elderly. Emissions from single occupancy vehicles contribute significantly to our region's dangerous ozone levels. Bike commuting can improve the air we breathe.
Bike to Work Week 2021 will take place on Monday, May 17 - Sunday, May 23.
