Celebrate Bike to Work Day in Georgetown

Save the date: May 18, 2018

The Georgetown BID, along with Commuter Connections and the Washington Area Bicyclist Association, invites you to join us for the 2018 Bike to Work Day on Friday, May 18, 2018, 7:30 - 9:30 a.m. 

Join nearly 17,000 area commuters for a celebration of bicycling as a clean, fun and healthy way to get to work. The Georgetown BID is sponsoring a “pit stop” where commuters can enjoy refreshments, snacks and bicycle-themed giveaways.

Once again, Georgetown Waterfront Park will be the site of our pit stop. Last year, the popular location drew approximately 400-500 riders on their way to work, creating a fun start to the day! Registration is free, and all registrants will automatically be entered in a drawing to win a free bike. The first 20,000 people who register will also receive a free t-shirt, and the first 300 to stop by will receive a Bike to Work Day water bottle. 

If coffee and carbs (and a few healthy items) are the way to your heart, enjoy complimentary refreshments provided by Sprinkles Cupcakes, Peet's Coffee, Grace Street Coffee, Dog Tag Bakery, PAUL Bakery, Insomnia Cookies, South Block, and Patisserie Poupon, plus a free chair massage from Unwind, The North Face giveaways, and Trek Bikes t-shirts and a mini tune-up station!

Also, remember to stop by the Georgetown BID info tent that morning for your chance to win:

  • The North Face itinerant bag
  • Athleta gift card
  • 1-month membership to CorePower Yoga
  • Two-week pass to Georgetown Yoga
  • SoulCycle group rides

For questions about the event or to volunteer, please email events@georgetowndc.com.

INCLEMENT WEATHER: Rain or shine, we've got you covered! There is the chance of rain on Friday, but we have reserved an area underneath Whitehurst Freeway, so you can stay dry and still enjoy your treats. Any changes or updates will be posted on our Facebook event page
