MassDOT, MassRIDES and MassBike wrapped up a successful 4th annual Bay State Bike Week on Sunday, May 19th with more than 14,000 riders participating. Bay State Bike Week is a statewide celebration of cycling, featuring bicycle-focused events that are coordinated at the local level and registered and promoted through the Bike Week website. 2013 was the biggest to date, including nearly 175 events and more than 14,000 riders enjoying bicycle film festivals in Western Mass, bike to work convoy’s on the Cape, a Bike Rodeo hosted by Quincy DPW to teach bicycle safety to local children, and many more events.
By demonstrating the support, enthusiasm and high levels of participation that bicycling enjoys in Massachusetts, events like Bay State Bike Week help to advance the cause of greater bicycle accommodation in our transportation system.
This year, MassDOT continues to maintain a top ten bicycle-friendly state ranking by the League of American Bicyclists. Events like those during Bay State Bike Week are what help to keep us as a top ten bicycle-friendly state!
