Bike Week 2014Bay State Bike Week is almost here! Massachusetts will honor bicycle transportation with a week long series of events from May 10th – 18th. PUMP UP your own event this week to show that bicycling can be a fun, healthy, safe, and sustainable travel choice.

Host a commuter bike breakfast, bicycle film festival, children’s bike safety training or lead a community bike ride. The event opportunities are endless! Specific event registration information, event resources, posters, brochures and materials request forms can be found on the web.

Bay State Bike Week is an annual celebration of human-powered, two-wheeled transportation. Massachusetts is the only state in the nation with a truly statewide bike week. Bay State Bike Week has grown from a small number of organized rides to a variety of events including film screenings, bike breakfasts, festivals and more. Organizers collaborate with local advocates, bike shop owners, and others who travel by bike.

Bay State Bike Week also plays a central role in MassDOT’s mode shift goal to triple the levels of bicycling, walking and transit users throughout the Commonwealth by 2030.

Not able to host an event? Join an event in your local community. Visit our website to find events near you. For more information, contact Becca Cyr at Rebecca.Cyr@state.ma.us

Bay State Bike Week Sponsors, MassDOTMassBike and MassRIDES look forward to celebrating another successful Bay State Bike Week across the Commonwealth this May!
