Thanks to good weather, and even more to the growing ranks of bike-friendly residents, we had an awesome turnout for Bike to Work Day 2013! Thanks to every single one of you who participated, and thanks to Mayor Segarra, Commissioners Esty, Smith and Redeker, and Senator Beth Bye for leading by example. And thanks to Fox CT and Colin McEnroe for helping us get the good word out! Special thanks to Sandy Fry and the whole Bike to Work Committee for all your planning and generous work.
We had 690 people pledge to bike to work today, and our estimates are that twice as many people actually participated. Bike to Work Day celebrations were held at 25 locations across the state -- up from 14 last year. Some 150 - 200 people attended the Hartford Old State House event alone!
Make Sure You're Counted Too!
If you biked to work today but didn't pledge ahead of time, please let us know here so we can include you in the count!
