Celebrate Bike to Work Day!

Tacoma, Wash. – Half of the U.S. population live within 5 miles of their workplace. We want to celebrate Tacomans who are choosing to commute those miles by bike! As a part of Bike Month, Downtown On the Go is hosting Bike to Work Day. Stop by Cosmonaut Coffee or True North Coffee House between the hours of 7:30 and 9:30 a.m. on May 20th for a free cup of coffee and encouragement.

People who bike to work have higher levels of well-being, self-confidence, and stress tolerance which makes them excellent morning people!

On the way home from work, stop by The Hub Event Space for the ultimate commuter celebration from 5:30 – 7:30 p.m.! Bikers can enjoy appetizers and the special Bike Month Beer!

People who bike to work report greater feelings of freedom, relaxation, and excitement than car commuters which makes them awesome happy hour companions!

Want to join in on the fun but don’t have a bike? Check out our Bike Shop Reports to scope out local bike shops and find your new ride. Unsure of the best route to your workplace? Contact us about our Bike Buddies Program and we will match you up with a cooperative comrade. Unsure of where to park your wheels when you get to work? We can help you find the best place to park your beloved bike! More questions? We have the answers at info@downtownonthego.org and 253-682-1734.

Bike Month is a collaboration between Pierce County, Pierce Transit, City of Tacoma, Downtown On the Go, and Rusty George Creative. See a full list of events at BIKE253.com.

Thank you to Tacoma Strength for sponsoring the 2016 Bike to Work Day celebration!
