MassDOT invites you to join the 3rd annual Bay State Bike Week set for May 14-20, a week of celebrating bicycle transportation across the Commonwealth. The MassDOT and MassBike partnership makes Bay State Bike Week a statewide celebration that is unique in the nation.
Building on the previous two statewide Bike Weeks, MassDOT, MassBike, and MassRIDES, our statewide travel options program, are again collaborating to raise awareness and to encourage bicycling transportation. Biking is safe, economical, healthy, environmentally friendly, fast, and fun!
Event organizers are asked to submit your event for the website’s statewide calendar and can join as a partner to be eligible to receive materials to support your event, including t-shirts, bike bells, reflectors and posters while supplies last. Last year, Bay State Bike Week included more than 180 events statewide with participation from Orleans to Pittsfield.
May is fast approaching, so start planning now and mark May 14th to May 20th on your calendar for Bay State Bike Week. Check out the Bay State Bike Week website at baystatebikeweek.org to find information for event organizers and participants.
