Municipal Proclamation: Bike to Work Day 2015

Anchorage Bike to Work Day is a local celebration of the national event initiated in 1956 by the League of American Bicyclists. Each May, Bike to Work Day provides a stimulus to get bodies and bikes in shape for a season of riding.   Coworkers or other groups form teams for education and mutual support. Rider participation has increased 150% since 2007; 3,677 riders were counted on the morning of Bike to Work Day 2015.

 

From 6:30 - 9:00 AM on Bike to Work Day, 3,703 riders were counted on key trails and roads, representing 216 teams!

Bike to work promotes the frequency and safety of utility cycling to improve air quality, traffic congestion and personal health. Anchorage is beautiful by bike!
