Celebrating Bike to Work Day 2017, in the Nation’s Capital

Did you take part in National Bike to Work Day, Wednesday, May 17?  Cyclists from across the Washington D.C. region certainly did.  Hundreds made Freedom Plaza, their first stop on the way to work. Located just blocks from both the White House and the US Capitol Building--DC government officials used Freedom Plaza as a backdrop torecognize and celebrate the District’s growing community of cyclists. Washington D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser welcomed the crowd after rolling into Freedom Plaza on two wheels. Bowser told the audience that her administration is committed to creating more bike lanes and pedestrian walkways that will support daily commuters, weekend bike enthusiasts and the growing number of tourists who bike while visiting D.C. At the base of the iconic Washington Monument Transportation TV caught up with a group of employees from the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials –who like thousands of others on this day—were enjoying the great weather and health benefits of biking to work.
