Wilmington officials encourage you to bike to work this week

Posted: Updated:
WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) -

Members of the Wilmington community are encouraged to ride their bike to work at least once this week as par of "ride your bike to work week," which runs May 12- 18.

The Wilmington Metropolitan Planning Organization (WMPO) is tracking the number of people participating in Bike to Work Week. Participants are asked to register by sending an email to adrienne.harrington@wilmingtonnc.gov with their name, company or organization name, and their preferred email address. 

The reasoning for registering your ride will provide data which will help the WMPO secure funding for the event in the future, apply for Bicycle Friendly Community and Business designation and show community support for bicycle projects.

Registrants will receive an email confirmation and a document to help log the days biked to work.

After Bike to Work Week is over, participants will receive a survey to enter their information, followed by an email indicating the total number of people who biked to work and companies/organizations with employees participating.
