ANCHORAGE, Alaska—Anchorage drivers can expect to see a few more two-wheel commuters on the eighth annual Bike to Work Day on Friday, May 18.
Bike to Work Day’s mission is to promote bicycling as a form of commuting and to improve personal health and to reduce traffic.
This year, more than 100 teams have officially registered, and there will be 11 treat stations (PDF) across the city that will provide free snacks for riders.
The Alaska Club said bike commuters with helmets can also shower for free at its locations.
Bike to Work Day coincides with Bike to Work Month, which Governor Parnell proclaimed earlier in May.
