Bike to Work Week 2021
Anoka County Bike to Work Week
June 14 - 18, 2021
Celebrate our annual Bike to Work Week Celebration Monday, June 14 through Friday, June 18. Take pledge to bike to work or if you're working from home, the amount of miles you'd normally bike to work. We'll be hosting a variety of bike oriented events throughout the week so you won't want to miss this!
Anoka County will be celebrating Bike to Work Week this week too using the hashtag #BikesUnite. We ask that you also use the hashtag #AnokaCountyBikeWeek so everyone will see Anoka County is participating. Plus, we're giving away some amazing prizes. Each participant will receive a free bike goodie bag, t-shirt, and complimentary breakfast.
Grand Prize Winner will receive a FREE Bike of up to $1,000 worth. Plus we'll be giving away prizes all week.
Here's how it works -
Go for a solo bike ride
We encourage participants to either bike to work or map out what a route would look like to work and try to bike those miles. We can help you route out a safe trip to work.
Share your experience on social media using the #BikesUnite & #AnokaCountyBikeWeek
Any employer or community partner that would like to participate will receive a free bike rack & complimentary breakfast for all employees.
