Bike to Work Day in Connecticut is May 18

With the theme “It’s Easier Than You Think!” Bike Walk CT is taking the lead to encourage bike commuting on National Bike to Work Day, May 18. Breakfasts for bike commuters will be held in Bethel, Bridgeport, Hartford, New Haven, New London, Norwalk, Norwich, Stamford, Waterbury, West Hartford, and UConn Health Center (Farmington).  If you're thinking of giving biking to work a try, helpful hints and local cycling organizations are prepared to help. Earlier this spring, a dozen bike racks were installed along Main Street in Hartford, the first of about 287 racks planned to be placed throughout the city.  The current schedule is for completion about the end of July.  This project has been several years in the making and has include the contributions of many individuals and organizations.  New Haven and the Elm City Cyclists have a very well organized Bike to Work program.
