The Baltimore Metropolitan Council (BMC) is excited to celebrate the 22nd annual Bike to Work Day on Friday, May 17, 2019. The celebration will feature hundreds of cyclists at over 45 events throughout the region.
Bike to Work Day 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.
Locally, B2WD promotes a “clean commute” and is part of the region's Clean Commute Initiative, which begins in April. 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.
As part of this event, seasoned commuters step up to lead convoys of riders to locations around the Baltimore area and beyond. It’s a great way to learn more about route planning and bicycle safety, while getting to meet others who enjoy biking to work.

Bike to Work Day 2019 will take place on Friday, May 17.
