This is the major event of the year for the Bicycle Commuter Club. We need new participants this year, as numerous stalwarts supporting this activity moved or retired last year.
Please reply to firstname.lastname@example.org, even 30 minutes anytime between 6:30 and 9:00 would be extremely helpful.
Additional help with publicity and preparation during the week would be valuable.
The bicycle commuter club provides an interactive forum for NIH cyclists, contributes to NIH-wide events and provides a voice to various NIH offices representing our bicycle commuting interests.
A taste of the Celebration - See the 2016 BTW, 2016 Carl Henn Award and 2015 BTW videos below
Over 155 intrepid bicycle commuters arrived and signed-in at the BTWD pit stop this morning. We appreciate the generous contributions of the Pit Stop sponsors, Hudson Trail Outfitters, Proteus Bicycles, Giant Foods and Upper Crust Bakery. Our thanks also go to the Division of Amenities and Transportation Services that provided the indispensable infrastructure for Bike to Work Day.
Joe Cox of NIH-DATS was awarded the Carl Henn statue for promoting and furthering the safety of bicycle commuters on the NIH campus.
Close Call Database
A new resource for bicyclists. This community-fed database lists details of negative to dangerous encounters with other vehicle operators. The idea is to become informed about bicycle commuting realities to help make every ride a safer one. Check out http://closecalldatabase.com/ .
