Bike to Work

Bike to Work - Group of People Biking

Bike to Work Day is Wednesday, April 19, 2019

Join employees of Maricopa County, the City of Phoenix, and the State of Arizona at the 14th Annual Bike to Work Day. County and city elected officials will host a three-mile bike ride and light breakfast in downtown Phoenix with the goal of inspiring citizens to increase their fitness and decrease pollution. Everyone is welcome to join the ride regardless of their bike-riding experience and fitness level. Participants will need to bring their own bikes, or use the Social Bicycle app to find and rent a bike.

Participants may choose to ride with a large police-escorted group from Park Central Mall to CityScape on Wednesday morning, or to ride directly to CityScape. Park Central Mall is located at 3100 N. Central Ave. CityScape is located at 1 E. Washington St.

Everyone is invited to visit CityScape to hear speakers, cheer on the riders, and support the bicycle community. Community volunteers will be on hand to promote health, fitness, safety, bicycle commuting, clean air, and more! Come out and join us.
