Pit Stops Overflowing with Registered Riders as Tomorrow s Bike to Work Day Takes Shape
Originally posted on Mobility Lab
The final push is on for registration for Bike to Work Day.
It’s shaping up that some of the most popular pit stops for tomorrow morning’s event throughout the region will be the Reagan Building downtown, and a whole series of Virginia stops, including Rosslyn, Old Town Alexandria, Ballston, Crystal City, and Reston. In Maryland, Bethesda and the National Institutes of Health Building One have a lot of sign-ups.
The numbers for each of those top places, as of today, ranged from anywhere between about 400 to 900 bicyclists. The Reagan Building and Rossyln were running neck-and-neck, around 900 each, for the most popular sites. Those who are registered will get free t-shirts, refreshments, and the chance to win bicycles and other prizes, thanks to the likes of organizers such as Capital Bikeshare, BikeArlington, the Washington Area Bicyclist Association, and many others.
As of today around 3 p.m., Gregory Billing, outreach and advocacy coordinator for WABA said, "We have 12,177 registered riders, which is almost 1,500 more than last year. We had just under 11,000 total for Bike to Work Day 2011."
