Last Friday hundreds of bike commuters, both seasoned and new, hit the road on two wheels and a helmet for Bike to Work Day. Choose Your Way Bellevue welcomed more than 200 bike riders at the Bike To Work Day station at the Bellevue Transit Center. That beats last year’s count of 164!
Choose Your Way Bellevue and On The Move Bellevue, along with Gregg’s Cycles, King County Metro, Puget Sound Energy, and Sound Transit, worked together to host a Bike To Work Station at the Bellevue Transit Center. Bike tools and gear were given away with a spin on the Choose Your Way Bellevue spin wheel. Many bike riders took their chances on Gregg’s Cycles raffle for gift cards from the store. And all were happy to indulge in a Bike To Work Day victory treat from Top Pot Doughnuts and Whole Foods Market. The Gregg’s Bellevue Cycle team also offered free tune-ups for bike commuters.
“We couldn’t be happier with the turnout on Friday. It was a pleasure to be able to give back to commuters who biked to work – whether they were seasoned cyclists or trying it for one day. Thank you for the opportunity, Cascade Bicycle Club,” said TransManage1 Program Manager, Augusta Prehn. “I can’t wait for next year!”
