• National Bike Month

    Did you know that May is National Bike Month? 


    Established in 1956, National Bike Month is a chance to showcase the many benefits of bicycling — and encourage more folks to giving biking a try.  As part of National Bike Month, National Bike to Work Week is held the third week of May, with Bike to Work Day being on that Friday.  

    COVID-19 Information:

    Due to Covid-19, Bike to Work Day is cancelled this year, but there is still plenty you can do to keep yourself in the cycling loop and ready to roll once the COVID-19 crisis is over.

    Confident City Cycling Classes

    We are working to make it as easy as possible to bike to work, but we recognize that it can still be daunting to ride in urban areas. For that reason, BTS regularly teams up with the Washington Area Bicyclist Association  and Montgomery County Commuter Services to host Confident City Cycling Classes during Bike Month and throughout the year taught by a certified WABA instructor!
