The region is gearing up for Bike to Work Day 2016 on Friday, May 20. Cities, counties, businesses, and community groups across the region are organizing pit stops to welcome cyclists and celebrate the day. They’re also producing fun videos to spread the word and inspire commuters to give bicycling a try! Check out some of the cool videos we’ve seen so far.
