Get ready for Bike to Work Week on May 30 to June 5.

Why should you try cycling to work? Enhance your personal fitness. Save money on gas.

Enter to win a bike! Spokes Bicycle Shop has donated a Kona Lanai Mountain bike as a draw prize.

Every time you attend a celebration station you get to enter the draw for the bike.

Enter to win daily prizes: At every celebration station there will be lots of draw prizes donated by our sponsors.
