It’s true — the dates have been set for this year’s Bike to Work Week: May 16-22!

Last year,  Bike to Work Week that drew 1,472 registered participants. In total, during Bike to Work Week participants avoided more than 64,000 miles of vehicle transportation by riding their bikes.

Volunteer committee chair Barb Chamberlain says the 2010 goal is to register 1,700 participants and sign up at least 80 teams for the Commute Challenge. Bike to Work Week 2009 included a Bicycle Education Fair, Walk & Roll to School Day at Spokane Public Schools with over 2,200 students participating, the Group Health Commute Challenge with 62 teams.

In 2010 the Commute Challenge will be extended to a month, with Bike to Work Week as the kickoff.

Registration for the 2010 edition of Bike to Work Week will open in March. For more information, visit biketoworkspokane.org.
