Hartford, CT – Bike Walk Connecticut and CTTRANSIT invite commuters to try a new way to get to work – riding a bike. Bike commuting reduces vehicle traffic, avoids pollution, saves gas and is the healthy way to travel! For those with long commutes, CTTRANSIT offers bike racks on the front of all its buses – a commuter can bike to the bus, ride to a stop near their work location and then bike to work.
To support bike commuting, Bike Walk Connecticut and CTTRANSIT will host a breakfast social for bicycle commuters on July 20, from 6:30 am to 9 am, at the Old State House in downtown Hartford. The bike to work breakfast is an opportunity for new bike commuters to learn tips from the experienced and for all to enjoy the camaraderie. CTTRANSIT will have a bus at the breakfast so that cyclists can practice putting a bicycle onto the bus rack.
According to CT Department of Transportation Commissioner Jim Redeker, “Bicycling is an increasingly important mode of transportation in Connecticut. It’s an option that more and more of us are considering. It’s ‘green,’ healthy and smart – not to mention fun.”
