[ARCHIVED] Bicycle commute planned for National Bike to Work Day

Date: May 14, 2013
For Immediate Release

Savannah will join cities all over the United States to celebrate National Bike to Work Day on Friday, May 17. Citizens can participate in a group commute from Habersham Village Shopping Center to Johnson Square, where bicycle commuters will enjoy free coffee and healthy snacks, and some exciting announcements.

A group of City of Savannah staff participating in the National Bike challenge will join the ride. The group commute will leave Habersham Village at 7:30 a.m. and end up in Johnson Square for refreshment and the news conference around 8:15 a.m.

“Since 2000, bicycle commuting has increased 47 percent in the U.S. and more than 400 percent in some communities,” said John Bennett, executive director of the Savannah Bicycle Campaign. “There is growing interest in bicycle commuting here in Savannah and we invite experienced and new commuters to join us on May 17.”

The 8:15 a.m. Johnson Square news conference will include the announcement of a newly awarded bicycle infrastructure grant, a sneak preview for a May 19th Bicycle Block Party in Savannah Gardens, and an update on L.E.A.N Challenge activities since the program launched last month.
