SUMMIT COUNTY – Summit County and the Physical Activity and Nutrition Team of the Summit (PANTS) invite the community to participate in the 2019 Bike to Work Day on Wednesday, June 26. Bicycle commuters can receive free breakfast, get simple tune-ups by local bike mechanics and be entered into prize drawings.
“Bike to Work Day is a chance for Summit residents to come together in celebration of Summit County’s fantastic Recpath system, our silver-level Bicycle-Friendly Community status and a recreational activity that’s such a big part of life here in our community,” County Commissioner Karn Stiegelmeier said. “This event can also jumpstart your bike-commuting habit, which has great environmental benefits, reduces stress and boosts physical fitness.”
Summit County has celebrated Bike to Work Day since 2010, and hundreds of commuters participate annually. PANTS began partnering with the County in 2014, helping to grow the event’s participation and activity offerings.
All cyclists are welcome to stop by any (or all) of the seven breakfast stations between 7 and 10 a.m. for free coffee, juice, muffins, bagels and other breakfast items. The breakfast stations will be at the following locations:
The community is invited to continue the celebration of Bike to Work Day at three locations in the evening.
“Summit County Open Space & Trails and PANTS have done an amazing job expanding this event over the past several years,” Stiegelmeier said. “Hundreds of Summit County workers saddle up for Bike to Work Day. Many of them realize how much they like it, and they continue to commute by bicycle multiple times throughout the summer.”
