Bike-to-Work Week 2012: April 9-13
Bike-to-Work Week is a weeklong event to encouage people to try using two wheels instead of four to get to work and reward those people who are already riding their bikes.
During the week, businesses will provide deals and goodies to people who bike to and from work.
The Bike-to-Work Week events culminate in the Downtown Bike to Work Celebration where cyclists can enjoy free food, live music as well as the commuter and advocate of the year awards.
