Bike to Work Day 2017
Members of the Fort Detrick community met at the AAFES Express parking lot as part of Bike to Work Day 2017 early on May 19. The group rode from Fort Detrick to Alumnae Hall at Hood College to meet the rest of the teams participating in the Frederick area. The League of American Bicyclists began Bike to Work Day as part of Bike Month in 1956. Over the years, Bike to Work Day has grown into a widespread event with countless bicyclists taking to the streets nationwide in an effort to get commuters to try bicycling to work as a healthy and safe alternative to driving alone. In the Metropolitan Washington region, Bike to Work Day has grown from a small group of a few hundred in 2001 to over 17,500 participants in 2016.
