Last year was the first year that MassDOT and the State Bicycle Advocacy group MassBike partnered to make Bay State Bike Week a truly statewide celebration and as we learned unique in the country.
This year Bay State Bike Week will build on the successful 2010 effort and a long history of Bike Week celebrations across the Commonwealth, as MassDOT, MassBike, and MassRIDES, the statewide travel options program collaborate again on Bike Week rides and other events throughout Massachusetts. This collaboration enables these organizations to work together to get the word out as widely as possible, and to broaden the scope of Bike Week events.
Biking as a mode of transportation is safe, economical, healthy, environmentally friendly, fast, and fun! Check out the Bike Week website at baystatebikeweek.org to find information for event organizers and participants.
Event organizers are asked to submit your event for the website’s statewide calendar! In addition, watch for information on how to receive cool stuff for your event, including t-shirts, reflectors and posters while supplies last. Organizers will also provide ideas and advice on organizing new events.
May is fast approaching, so start planning now! Mark May 14th to May 20th on your calendar for Bay State Bike Week and check the website for more information.
