Bike to Work Day is an internationally recognized awareness celebration today, Friday May 18!
The City of Houston will kick things off in Hermann Square at 7:00am to hear opening remarks and safety tips from the City of Houston. A three mile bike round through downtown starts at 7:20am. You’ll also find sponsor booths and activities taking place in Hermann Square both during and after the ride.
And throughout the day, enjoy the benefits of bicycling with FREE bike checkouts from all 60 locations of BCycle in Houston.
“We’re thrilled to offer everyone a chance to use bike sharing on Bike to Work Day,” said Henry Morris, Marketing & Communications Manager at Houston BCycle. “Since launching our partnership with CHI St. Luke’s Health, our riders have been collectively burning millions of calories each month on our bikes. We hope that a day of free rides will introduce even more people to biking as a healthy, fun, and sustainable transit option.”
On May 18th, anyone will be able to walk up to a Houston BCycle kiosk, swipe their credit card to create a guest account, and check out a bike for free by using the promotional code 51818.
Houston BCycle Members are offered unlimited 60-minute-or-less bike share rides throughout the entire network of stations. Annual access is available for $99.00.
