National Bike to Work Day is Friday, May 17th, 2024! This year’s Bike to Work Day will include over 40 fueling stations around Austin. Fueling stations will operate from 7 AM – 9 AM and give out a variety of free treats like coffee, tacos, waffles, snacks, and complimentary bike tune-ups for commuters. The morning will conclude with a celebration at City Hall featuring bike-friendly vendors passing out goodies and special guest speakers.

Biking is a great way to get where one needs to go, while connecting with our environment, community, nature, and also boosting mental and physical health. Biking has also been shown to reduce stress and reduce air pollution. Although “work” is in the name, you don’t have to be on your way to work to actually participate. Just get out on a bike! We will be celebrating all things bike – if you are riding to/from work, riding with the kids to school, just feel like going on a ride, or mostly looking for the free coffee and tacos… pump up those tires, check those brakes, and swing by some of the Fueling Stations to say hi!

Metrobike Austin will be offering free day passes all day on Bike to Work Day. Use code BTWD2024.
