Despite overcast skies and threats of rain, NIH bike commuters turned out in force for the Washington Area Bicyclist Association's Bike to Work Day on May 18.

With 324 registered participants, NIH hosted about 200 bike commuters at the Bicycle Commuter Club's morning festival in front of Bldg. 1; around 100 more celebrated at the Rockledge and Executive Blvd. offices. The three NIH pit stops together welcomed more participants than most of WABA's city pit stops. Only the Freedom Plaza, Reston and Vienna pit stops had higher attendance than NIH. Across the region, more than 6,600 people biked to work that day.

The strong showing-more than double the 135 NIH cyclists who registered for the event last year-allowed the club to defend its 2006 title for the highest employee participation in the event among Washington, D.C.-area employers from the Metropolitan Council of
Governments.
