Registration is Now Open for Bike to Work Day

Attention Loudoun County Bikers

Bike to Work Day is Friday, May 21, and registration is now open.

New and experienced bicycle riders are encouraged to register for this free event at, or by calling 202-518-0524. The Loudoun County Office of Transportation Services hosts two local pit stops, where registrants can pick-up free t-shirts, receive giveaways, enjoy refreshments and enter prize raffles.

Bike to Work Day celebrates a clean, healthy and fun way to get to work at 35 different pit stops throughout the metropolitan Washington region. The two Loudoun County pit stops will be along the Washington and Old Dominion (W&OD) Trail, rain or shine. On May 21, bicycle riders may visit:
  • Leesburg at Raflo Park on Harrison Street, 6:00 a.m. to 9:00 a.m.
  • Sterling at Orbital Sciences Corporation, just east of Route 28, 6:30 a.m. to 9:00 a.m.
Commuters who are interested in participating must pre-register by May 14, in order to reserve a free T-shirt at the pit stop location they register to attend.

The regional Bike to Work Day is coordinated by the Washington Area Bicyclist Association and the Metropolitan Washington Council of Governments.

For more information about local festivities, contact the Loudoun County Office of Transportation Services at 703-737-8044.
