2019 BWI Trail Bike Tour
Please join your fellow WDCSITE colleagues for an easy, fun, and informative tour of the BWI Trail. In advance of 2019 Bike to Work Day (May 17), we’d love to have you join us to explore the trail and the facilities it connects, including several MDOT offices and other transportation facilities
We will be meeting at the Thomas A. Dixon, Jr., Aircraft Observation Area at 10:30 AM. Expect the tour to take just over 90 minutes, which includes stops along the way.
Bike rentals will be provided by Light Street Cycles, but you may bring your own bike if you prefer. Registration fees for this event are slightly higher if you need to rent a bike. If you need to rent a bike, please let me know your height so Light Street Cycles can provide a sufficient number of bicycles for all riders. If you are renting a bike, you will need to sign a waiver, which will be provided by Light Street Cycles.
A helmet for each rider will be required. Please bring one if you can, and let me know if you do not have one so Light Street Cycles can provide a sufficient supply. If you have extras available, please let me know, and I will coordinate with you to see if we need them.
The bicycles being provided by Light Street Cycles have water bottle holders. Please remember to bring water with you.
The tour will simply involve riding along the trail. The entirety of the trail is physically separated from roadways. It does cross some intersections, but all are signal-controlled. Depending on how quickly the tour moves, we will either complete the loop or stop at a point and turn back.
It is anticipated that PDH credit(s) will be available. Payment will be taken electronically only (through Paypal portal).
10:30 AM – 10:45 AM – Registration and Waivers
