If you’ve been following us for a while, this post may feel like deja-vu. We’ve always supported biking as a green mode of transportation, but with Bike to Work Day in DC this Friday, we thought we would re-share our “Biking in NoMa” post. This Friday, May 16, thousands of DC Metro area commuters will choose two wheels to get to the office! There will be a pit stop right here in NoMa, one of 79 stops throughout the Metro area, where registered attendees can pick up a free t-shirt and other fun prizes. You can visit as many pit stops as you’d like, just be sure to visit the stop you registered for in order to get your t-shirt! If you’re headed to Southeast, stop by Canal Park for a break and some fun prizes. Registration is completely free and helmets are strongly suggested–safety first, guys!
