The Loudoun County government is encouraging residents to register for the greater Washington, D.C. area’s annual Bike to Work Day, which will be held on Friday, May 21.
Officials said both commuters and those working from home can participate for free, offering a chance to exercise and promote mental well-being on the way to the office.
Bike to Work Day, a function of the Washington Area Bicyclist Association and Commuter Connections, is celebrating its 20th anniversary this year.
The event often attracts thousands of bikers to area roads and will be held rain or shine, officials said.
Two physically distanced pit stops, where those who registered can pick up their free T-shirt, will be set up adjacent to the Washington & Old Dominion Trail, which extends from Purcellville to Shirlington in Arlington County.
One pit stop will operate from 6 to 9 a.m. in Raflo Park on Harrison Street in Leesburg, while the other will be outside the Sterling Ruritan Club at 183 Ruritan Rd., Sterling, from 6:30 to 9:30 a.m.
