The Trachtenberg Office Observes Bike to Work Day!

The Trachtenberg Office joins the rest of the region and the nation in celebrating “Bike to Work Day”—an annual event that encourages residents and employees to choose bicycle commuting as an effective means to improve air quality, reduce traffic congestion and noise, and to conserve energy. Bike to Work Day events celebrate healthy and fun transportation, and include free food, beverages and giveaways.

To celebrate Bike to Work Day, residents and employees were invited to one of the County’s Bike to Work Day Pit Stops. The Montgomery County Pit Stops were located at Downtown Silver Spring, Downtown Bethesda, North Bethesda, Downtown Rockville, Falls Grove, NIH’s main campus, FDA’s campus at White Oak, and Bethesda National Naval Medical Center.

Biking and walking to work are healthy ways to make your daily commute. These cost even less than driving or taking transit and get you in shape! They also reduce pollution and congestion, enhancing our quality of life. And remember - Ride On and Metrobus have bike racks, so you can bike or walk part way and transit the rest.
