Friday May 15th is National Bike to Work Day. To help encourage people to ride into work, we’ll have free breakfast Bienville Sq in Downtown Mobile from 7-9am.
On Friday, May 15th, BicycleMobile.org is celebrating National Bike to Work Day and thanks to sponsorship from Chick-fil-A and Serda’s Coffee Company is giving away free breakfast to anyone riding their bikes to work downtown. Mobile will join cities across the country in participating in this fun and free event.
The National Bike to Work Day is the Friday of National Bike to Work Week (May 11-15) which is just one of many local events being held in conjunction with National Bike and Bicycle Safety Awareness Month. With proclamations from Alabama Governor, Dr. Robert Bentley; Mayor of Mobile, Sandy Stimpson; and the Mobile City Council, National Bike Month’s purpose is to showcase the many benefits of bicycling, and encourage more folks to give biking a try.
BicycleMobile.org will have a station in Bienville Square in Downtown Mobile From 7am to 9am to register bicycle commuters and give away chicken biscuits courtesy of Chick-fil-A at RSA Trustmark, and drip coffee courtesy of Serda’s Coffee Company. There will also be goodies from other downtown businesses including Greer’s Downtown Market and Mobile Downtown Alliance.
According to The League of American Bicyclists, more than half of the U.S. population lives within five miles of their workplace making a bike commute a feasible option for a significant portion of the community. Mobile’s flat terrain and grid-like streets make it easy to navigate across the city. Organizers are encouraging people to bike to work, to school, for exercise, or even to the grocery store. Join BicycleMobile.org, the Mayor, and the City of Mobile in this inaugural event.
For anyone needing assistance in planning a safe route, please contact BicycleMobile.org (firstname.lastname@example.org) for personalized route suggestions. Businesses that invite their staff to participate in this event will be highlighted on BicycleMobile.org and through social media.
