Get out your bike, and get ready to ride, Fayetteville. Bike to Work Week kicks off on Sunday, May 12.

May is National Bike Month, and here in Fayetteville, city officials and the Bicycle Coalition of the Ozarks are once again encouraging people to ride a bicycle to work as many days as possible for Bike to Work week, scheduled May 12-18 this year.

The festivities will kick off at 5:15 p.m. on Friday, May 10 with a proclamation by Mayor Lioneld Jordan, followed by a group ride down Frisco, Scull Creek, and Mud Creek Trails led by city trails coordinator Matt Mihalevich.

As usual for Bike to Work week, residents in Washington and Benton County will compete in a bicycle commuter challenge. The BCO will award donated prizes to the workplaces with the highest percentage of bicycle commuters on a given day and to individuals who log the longest commutes.
