Bike to Work

Join us for Bike to Work day on Wednesday, April 19, 2017

Please join Maricopa County and the City of Phoenix in the 12th Annual Bike to Work Day event. County and city elected officials will host a three-mile bicycle ride and light breakfast in downtown Phoenix with the goal of inspiring citizens to increase their fitness and decrease pollution. Everyone is welcome to join the ride regardless of their bicycle-riding experience and fitness level.

Participants may choose to bicycle with a large police-escorted group including Maricopa County Board of Supervisors Chairman Denny Barney, Recorder Adrian Fontes, School Superintendant Steve Watson, Sheriff Paul Penzone, Supervisor Bill Gates and Steve Gallardo, County Manager Joy Rich, and Phoenix Council Member Laura Pastor from Park Central Mall to CityScape on Wednesday morning. Or, simply ride directly to CityScape. Park Central Mall is located at 3100 N. Central Ave. in mid-town Phoenix. CityScape is located at 1 E. Washington St.

Participants who register for the group ride or solo ride will receive a light breakfast at CityScape and a Valley Metro t-shirt and be eligible to win great prizes. Pre-register before April 17 at bit.ly/btw-17 to receive breakfast, a t-shirt, and be eligible to win prizes.

Everyone is invited to visit CityScape to hear speakers, cheer on the riders, and support the bicycle community. Community volunteers will be on hand to promote health, fitness, safety, bicycle commuting, clean air, and more! Come out and join us. Cheer on the bicycle riders and check out the cool bikes. Be inspired to ride!
