Bay State Bike Week has shattered last year’s record of 110 events, with over 120 events registered for 2011 – and more keep on rolling in.  Communities across the state are celebrating and encouraging bicycling for all purposes through a variety of activities beginning May 14th and  continuing  through May 20th.  These range from free “Bike Breakfasts” to 100-mile (century) bike rides to bike film festivals.  These events are only possible because of the hard work local bike enthusiasts, public agencies and businesses put into the weeklong celebration. Find an event in your community at BayStateBikeWeek.org, and if there isn’t an event near you, organize one! 

When you stop by oneBike Week 2011 of the many events around the state, be sure to pick up your free t-shirt or ankle band.  The series of events and the free goodies are made possible by MassBike, the statewide bike advocacy organization, in partnership with MassDOT, and most importantly the hundreds of event organizers around the commonwealth.  Bike Week is also being held in conjunction with the Mass Commuter Challenge, which allows businesses and individuals to compete for prizes and recognition for the greatest number of commuters and miles traveled by a non-single occupancy vehicle. 

So hop on the bandwagon (or bike, as the case may be) and join in the fun!  For more information, visit BayStateBikeWeek.org or email BayStateBikeWeek@massbike.org
