The NIH Bicycle Commuter Club and the ORS Division of Amenities and Transportation Services invite you to celebrate Bike to Work Day on Friday, May 20. 

NIH will host one of the 107 pit stops in D.C., Maryland and Virginia, supported by the Washington Area Bicyclists Association. Join us—rain or shine—in this national celebration of bicycling as an environmentally friendly, cost-effective, fun and healthy way to commute to work.

Registration is free. Visit www.biketoworkmetrodc.org/register. Enter your employer as “MD Montgomery Co National Institutes of Health Bldg 1” and help NIH defend its proud title as the employer with the most Bike to Work Day participants. NIH is not affiliated with, nor does it endorse any prizes associated with the event. 

For NIH’ers who have never commuted by bicycle to NIH and are not sure how to begin, visit the “commuting” link on the NIH Bicycle Commuter Club website at: http://www.nihbike.com/.
