MassDOT Secretary and CEO Richard A. Davey is encouraging residents to bicycle during Bay State Bike Week, May 14-20. Hundreds of events across the Commonwealth have been planned and groups and individuals can participate by signing up at www.baystatebikeweek.org.
“I value the work each community is putting forth to make this year a success and to encourage bicycling as an enjoyable way to stay active,” said MassDOT Secretary and CEO Richard A. Davey.
Two years ago, MassDOT became the first state DOT in the nation to organize and lead a statewide Bike Week celebration, working in partnership with MassBike, the Massachusetts Bicycle Coalition statewide bicycle education and advocacy group, and MassRIDES, MassDOT's travel options program.
Bay State Bike Week supports GreenDOT, a comprehensive environmental responsibility and sustainability initiative of MassDOT.
The 11 Massachusetts Transportation Management Associations are presenting the 18th annual MassCommute Bicycle Challenge, a friendly competition among employers, schools and communities to encourage Massachusetts residents to take some of their regular short trips by bicycle during Bay State Bike Week. For more information, visit www.masscommutebicyclechallenge.org
Participants are also encouraged to track their trips through NuRide, the nation’s largest rewards program for taking green trips – walking, biking, carpooling, vanpooling, public transportation, and even telecommuting.
