Bike to Work 2013 Recap. Across the region, Bike to Work Day ridership and the number of pit stops reached an all-time high in 2013. On Bike to Work Day, more than 8,400 people biked to work, a nearly 16% increase from 2012. That morning, 94 pit stops were set up across the county, up from 85 the previous year. Pit stops serve as refueling stations for riders to rest, enjoy refreshments and snacks, and receive a free Bike to Work Day t-shirt. Overall, more than 216,000 bicycle commute miles were logged in May 2013, generating significant environmental and health benefits. That equates to nearly 9,400 gallons of gas saved, 6.6 million calories burned, and is equivalent to nearly nine trips around the earth.

Bike to Work can't happen without the help of many great partners. We thank them for their generosity.
