By: Cyclepalooza, on behalf of Bike to Work DayMission:
Bike to Work Day's mission is to encourage people working in the downtown core and surrounding neighborhoods to try biking to work. This is in the hopes that they might enjoy the experience and continue to cycle to work all year long. Of course there are people in the outer reaches that also bike to work - once you get a taste of the freedom - you might too.
In addition to the 8 Energy Pit Stop Stations throughout downtown, there will be a festival event at Eau Claire Market in the North Plaza. There will be a FREE pancake breakfast, music, demonstrations, and local bike shops will be there to tune-up your bike, answer questions, and give out free stuff. This event is a great way to highlight the benefits of cycling, while socializing and getting some fresh air. Of course cycling is a healthy, efficient, convenient, low-cost and socially responsible means of transportation, and we know that it contributes to a reduction in inner-city traffic congestion and air pollution, but it's also a lot of fun
