Huntington to celebrate Bike to Work Day on Friday, May 19
The City of Huntington Mayor’s Bicycle and Pedestrian Advisory Council will sponsor a Bike to Work Day celebration from 7:30 to 9 a.m. Friday, May 19, at Jeff’s Bike Shop, 704 6th Ave.
Anyone who bikes to work that day is welcome to stop by Jeff’s Bike Shop during the designated time for free coffee, donuts and water. Mayor Steve Williams also will attend and deliver a proclamation in honor of Bike to Work Day.
Bike to Work Day encourages people to bike their work commute. May is National Bike Month, which celebrates bicycling as transportation, recreation and an activity that is essential to our well-being. Bicycling is a healthy, economical, environmentally friendly and fun way to commute to work. According to the League of American Bicyclists, 40 percent of all trips in the U.S. are less than two miles, which makes bicycling a feasible way to travel.
