Downtown Bethesda Bike to Work Day 2019

Bike to Work Day turned out to be the most perfect day to Bike to Work, and Bike FROM Work as well! Between our morning event and evening event, we saw nearly 400 cyclists check into Bike to Work Day at Downtown Bethesda, and we had amazing event partners and prize donations! Click here to see photos of the event!
We still have t-shirts, and there's one here for you if you came to the pit-stop but didn't get one.

Sizes available are Small, Medium, Large, and Extra Large, while supplies last. Come on in and ask Allison in the front office for your preferred size. 

Location: Offices of Bethesda Transportation Solutions, a division of the Bethesda Urban Partnership
7700 Old Georgetown Road, Lobby Level, Bethesda, MD 20814, (301) 656-0868
Hours: 9:00am - 5:00pm, Monday through Friday
ALSO...This Saturday morning - that's June 1 - we are hosting a Confident City Cycling and a SOLD OUT Learn to Ride Class! Both classes will be meeting at the Bethesda-Chevy Chase Rescue Squad Parking Lot located at 5020 Battery Lane in Bethesda. There is still space in the Confident City Cycling Class, so register today!

Thank You To Our State & Local Dignitaries

Thank you to our Advisory Committee and Volunteers

Our event is able to run smoothly and efficiently thanks to the support of our volunteers, many of whom serve on our Advisory Committee. These folks sacrificing their (very) early morning to work at our registration table, food table, and just general set up and being there help to make the Downtown Bethesda event one of the best in the region.

Thank You To Our Sponsors & Event Partners

This event could never be so successful without the support and involvement of our local business community. Businesses like Silver, who hosted our evening Bike FROM Work Day Meet up and Griffin Cycle, who donated the Grand Prize from our raffle - which was won by Neil Tender (pictured at right with his new bike), make Bike To Work Day in Downtown Bethesda one of the best in the region year after year. Also, a big thank you to Marriott International their generous donation, which enabled us to buy bananas, breakfast bars, and supplies!

Bike Spirit Award Winners

Mashrur Chowdhury has been biking to work for eight months.
He was nominated for a Bike Spirit Award by his colleague, Kathleen Mihm, who says that “Mashrur is not a biker, and the only reason he considered biking to work was he saw other people at work doing it year round.  More people would do it if they only knew it could be done! Mashrur rides his bike to work most days and is a great example of the benefits of biking to work.”

Maya Riser-Kositsky has been biking seven miles from her home in Washington, DC to her office in Downtown Bethesda for 18 months. She was nominated for a Bike Spirit Award by her colleague, Holly Peele, who says that she nominated Maya simply because “she bikes a lot!” Their employer offers a bike subsidy, shower and locker facilities, and bike parking.

MCPD Cpl. Russ Rankin was "instrumental" in starting the Downtown Bethesda Community Policing Team, which you have probably seen around town patrolling Bethesda via bike. According to his colleague, Lt. John D'Albora, "Russ would always be willing to hit the beat on the bike no matter how cold and even in the snow at times." Lt. D'Albora even estimated that he has ridden around 20,000 miles while on the job with the bike patrol!
