Friday is Bike To Work Day

Reston Town Center will be one pit stop along the way as thousands will ride their bicycles to work this week.

More than 10,000 Washington, DC-area commuters are expected to use pedal power to get to work on Friday for Bike to Work Day 2013.

Washington area events are organized by Commuter Connections and the Washington Area Bicyclist Association, who say that biking to work has benefits for both employees and employers. Among them: reduced health care and parking costs.

There will be 70 "pit stops" around the metro area, including one at the Reston Town Center pavilion.

Pit stops will feature free T-shirts, refreshments, and a raffle for a free bicycle. The Town Center pit stop is sponsored by Reston Association and the Reston Bike Club. It runs from 6:30 a.m. to 9 a.m.

To register for the raffle in advance, click here.

Beautiful weather for Bike to Work Day. Along with the free food, bike-related give-aways and door prizes at the Reston Town Center pit stop, they also had one of the Fairfax Connector buses to demonstrate the bike racks that are on all of their buses now.
