Loudoun County will host two pit stop celebrations where registrants can pick-up free T-shirts, receive giveaways, enjoy refreshments, and win prizes. The Loudoun County pit stops are adjacent to the Washington and Old Dominion (W&OD) Trail in:
- Leesburg at Raflo Park on Harrison Street, from 6:00 a.m. to 9:00 a.m.; and
- Sterling, just east of Route 28, at Ruritan Road behind Northrop Grumman, from 6:30 a.m. to 9:00 a.m.
Bike to Work Day is coordinated regionally by the Washington Area Bicyclist Association and Commuter Connections. The event is held rain or shine and typically attracts thousands of participants.
Hundreds of cyclists are expected to take part in the event in Loudoun County. The local festivities are planned by Loudoun County Commuter Services. More information, including a link to register, is available at www.loudoun.gov/BiketoWork or by contacting local coordinator Judy Galen at 703-737-8044 or by email.
