Hundreds of events have been planned across the Commonwealth to celebrate bicycling as a healthy, sustainable transportation choice that is safe, economical, environmentally friendly, fast and fun!
Bay State Bike Week is scheduled for next week, May 14-20, and is a week dedicated to celebrating bicycle transportation across the Commonwealth. The Massachusetts Department of Transportation (MassDOT), MassRIDES, the statewide travel options program, and MassBike, the statewide bicycle education and advocacy organization, have partnered for the last 3-years to make Bay State Bike Week a celebration that is unique in the nation. Two years ago, MassDOT became the first state DOT in the nation to organize and lead a statewide Bike Week celebration.
Events will be taking place throughout the Commonwealth encouraging both avid and new bicyclists to hop on a bike as their mode of transportation. General information and information about events in your community can be found at www.baystatebikeweek.org.
