Bike to Work Day 2014
Man at Bike to Work Day 2014There's no way around it: Mother Nature tested the resolve of the DC-Metro area's bicyclists with pouring rain, flooding, and wind the morning of Bike to Work Day.

In spite of her best efforts to deter them, Downtown Bethesda had 160 brave folks check in at the Pit Stop!

We had plenty of food and prizes, but, most importantly, we had shelter from the rain in the Capital Crescent Trail tunnel and we had hot coffee provided by Abt Associates.

Several elected officials braved the storm to speak to the cyclists gathered, including our returning emcee, Maryland State Delegate Ariana Kelly!

This year's program included Proclamations from the State Comptroller, Montgomery County and the State of Maryland. The complete list of speakers included:
  • Comptroller Peter Franchot
  • MD State Delegate Susan Lee
  • William Hwang, Deputy Assistant Secretary for Transportation Policy and Freight, Maryland Department of Transportation
Bicycle Commuter Spirit Awards

Delegate Kelly presented Bethesda’s 10th Annual Bicycle Commuter Spirit Awards. This year’s winners were Holly Chase and Rod Hannon. Both winners showed tenacious spirit and dedication in their long years of bike commuting in all types of weather. Look for more about our winners in the next newsletter!


If you were not able to ride to the Pit Stop, we have your shirt at our office. Sizes available are Small, Medium, Large, and Extra Large while supplies last. Come on in and ask Allison in the front office for your preferred size.
