A couple events for anyone interested in bicycling in DC to keep in mind. First, Arlington County needs volunteers to count bikes and pedestrians on May 7th and May 9th. Volunteers will count cyclists and pedestrians on particular routes, and the data they collect will go to inform planners and officials about the need for additional facilities. If you’re interested in the project and can donate your time in a two-hour shift, contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Secondly, Bike to Work Week is right around the corner (May 11-15)! In honor of that, the Swiss Embassy is hosting a May 13th forum on biking with DC’s Tommy Wells, the mayor of Zurich, and bike-friendly Congressman Earl Blumenauer (D-OR), to name a few. The free event will include a bicycling exhibit, remarks from the expert panel, and a reception in the Ambassador’s residence. And if you ride your bike there, you’ll receive a special gift! Find more information and RSVP on the Swiss Embassy’s website.
