• 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.  

    BTS has worked with partners like Silver and the Washington Area Bicyclists Association (WABA) to plan other fun events that celebrate biking!

    Bike to Work Day Pit Stop in Downtown Bethesda - Friday, May 15, 2020

    The original and biggest Bike Month event! Hundreds of cyclists gathered in the morning on the corner of Woodmont and Bethesda Avenues for free breakfast, speakers, a DJ, a raffle with tons of prizes including a brand new bike from Griffin Cycle!

    Bike FROM Work Meet-Up

    The afternoon of Bike to Work Day, we partnered with Silver, along the Capital Crescent Trail, for a Bike FROM Work Meet-Up!

    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!
