National Bike to Work Day  Export Event
Date and Time 
May 20 2016(All Day)
Location  Tacoma
Description Help strengthen Tacoma’s burgeoning bike culture by riding your bike to work! The statistics do not lie: 40% of all car trips are less than two miles. This fact makes biking a realistic option for many to bike to work. Increasing the number of bikers also puts pressure on local and regional governments to provide better bike infrastructure. Come out, enjoy the spring weather, and be part of the critical mass of bicyclists here in Tacoma!
