Bike To Work Week 15-19 May 2017

Bike To Work Week 2017 is 15-19 May,
and Friday 19 May is Bike To Work Day.

You can pledge to bike to work / on errands with GMTMA (the Greater Mercer Transportation Management Association), which also has a Bike To Work team challenge for employers. For the photographers among us, there is a "Visions of Bicycling" photo contest.

For those who are new to commuting by bike, GMTMA has lots of great tips. If you register as a bike commuter, they offer an Emergency Ride Home program in case you encounter a major problem on your bike commute.

If you can't get to work by bike, GMTMA has a wealth of information on greener ways to commute, including a carpool program that helps you find drivers or passengers. The Emergency Ride Home program covers cases where you need to arrive at work earlier or leave later than your commuting partners. And they have a Green Commuter Rewards Program. What's not to love?

Bike To School Day for Johnson Park School is on Tuesday, May 16.
Bike To School Day for Riverside School is Tuesday, May 23, NOT on May 18 as indicated earlier.
(Days for Community Park School and Princeton High School still TBD).
