Bay State Bike Week, Secretary Pollack, May 12, 2015What could be better than April breaking the 70 degree mark? The beginning of May, because we’re getting ready for Bay State Bike Week!

Every May, Massachusetts residents and bike commuters come together to celebrate human-powered, two-wheeled transportation during Bay State Bike Week. This year, the week-long celebration will take place from May 14th- 22nd.

Throughout the Commonwealth, participants organize bike-centric events to encourage new riders and to raise awareness about the many benefits of bicycle transportation, so make sure to register or join an event! Bay State Bike Week has something for all kinds of riders, whether you’re a newbie to biking or a seasoned cyclist!

Visit www.BayStateBikeWeek.org to find an event in your community or to host an event. Can’t find an upcoming event close to you? That’s okay! We encourage you to check back regularly because events are added daily. Thinking about registering an event but don’t know what type of event to organize? That’s okay too- events can range from group bike rides to bike film festivals, from bike breakfasts to bike rodeos. The opportunities are endless.

All week, we encourage participants to share the Bay State Bike Week logo and to post and share your events on social media. You can find us on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter @BayStateBikeWk but don’t forget to use #BayStateBikeWk to help keep the message going!

Remember to log your bike trips in NuRide for a chance to win prizes all week long. NuRide is the state’s ridematching and rewards program for individuals who take green trips. Bike Week participants will be eligible to win daily raffles by logging their commute or leisurely bike trips each day in NuRide. Massachusetts residents and commuters who take any green commute throughout the year are eligible to receive NuRide rewards for bicycling, carpooling, vanpooling, walking, taking public transit, or even teleworking and can sign up for free at NuRide.

Bay State Bike Week is brought to you in partnership by MassDOT, MassBike, the statewide bicycle education and advocacy group, as well as MassRIDES, the Commonwealth’s Travel Options Program.

Happy biking, Bay Staters!
