Join the NIH Bicycle Commuter Club (NIHBCC) in celebrating National Bike Month and Bike to Work Day on Friday, May 19th, from 7am – 9:30am at NIH-Bldg. 1, 6:30am – 8:30am at Rock Springs Business Park (Marriott HQ) and 6:30am – 9am Rockville-Fallsgrove (pit stop close to the NCI Shady Grove building).  These buildings will be featured among many local pit stops supported by the Washington Area Bicyclists Association in a salute to bicycle commuting.  NIH often wins the Metropolitan Washington Council of Government’s (COG) award for being the area’s biggest employer of Bike to Work Day participants.  Complete your free registration at http://www.biketoworkmetrodc.org/register-now/ and help us defend our proud title this year by identifying your employer as “National Institutes of Health” no matter which pit stop you register for. You must pre-register for the pit stop you plan to visit to receive a Bike to Work Day 2017 T-shirt; available while supplies last.  At the NIH pit stop, all employees and contractors who show up riding a bicycle and wearing a helmet may enjoy breakfast snacks and participate in a raffle drawing.  If you have never tried commuting by bike to NIH and aren’t quite sure how to begin, visit http://www.nihbike.com and click on the “Commuting” link.  Bike to Work Day is a rain or shine event.  Volunteers are always appreciated to help with preparations before Bike to Work Day or on the day of the event. If you would like to help out, please email Vernon Anderson at andersonve@nigms.nih.gov.  Bike to Work Day participation enhances awareness of the myriad benefits bicycle commuting brings to personal health, the community, and the environment.
