**Update: If you were unable to attend Bike to Work Day on Friday due to the bad weather and you previously registered for the event and would like to get your t-shirt, please contact your individual pit stop manager. Pit stops may have leftover t-shirts; WABA does not at this time. The list of pit stops can be found here. Click on your pit stop name to view your pit stop managers name and contact info. Pit stop managers may also be emailing registrants to inform them of when and where they can pick up their t-shirts.**
Thank you to everyone who participated in Bike to Work Day today and to everyone who signed up for the event.
We understand that with forecasts leading into Bike to Work Day of potentially dangerous weather, the heavy rains that occurred early this morning, and flooding in some areas, many folks chose another commute option for getting to work. That is ok.
We high-fived those who did bike this morning, and we hope those who did not will choose to bike to work again soon. Many pit stops across the region today still welcomed smiling (and wet) faces of people biked, walked, bussed, and even drove to their local stop.
WABA is talking with our regional partners, MWCOG, and pit stop mangers to find a feasible way of providing another t-shirt pickup option for those who didn’t make it to their pitsops. (But please note that shirts were distributed to the pitstops throughout the region, so stopping by the WABA office won’t get you one.)
As the rain moves out of the area today (there are blue skies out there now!), consider stopping by one of the afternoon pit stops and Bike to Work Day events. But please note that these pit stops will NOT have t-shirts for you to pick up if you had not previously registered for their stop, but they are a great way to still join in on the BTWD festivities.
Afternoon stops will be at Columbia Heights, College Park Metro, Arlington East Falls Church at the W&OD Trail, Silver Spring East West Highway at The Blairs, and Malmaison in Georgetown.
