ROCKLAND — On Friday, May 19, the City of Rockland will celebrate Bike to Work Day with a community gathering at Chapman Park, featuring coffee, breakfast snacks, and a presence from local cycling organizations.
Bike to Work Day is a nationwide event that promotes the benefits of bicycling and active transportation. Bicycling instead of driving to work, even just one day a year, contributes to a reduction in our community’s carbon footprint.
“We’re looking forward to supporting the community’s interest in bicycling as a form of active transportation with this event,” said Jenny Carter, City of Rockland’s sustainability coordinator, in a news release. “Spring is here, and it’s a great time to get on our bikes.”
This year, Rockland’s Bike to Work Day will begin with a morning gathering at Chapman Park, from 7 - 8:30 a.m., with coffee provided by Rock City Coffee, donuts provided by Ruckus Donuts, and bagels provided by Good Tern Co-Op. Group rides through downtown Rockland will depart from Chapman Park periodically.
Pen Bay Community Health, local cycling advocacy group Rockland Rolls, and Bicycle Coalition of Maine will be tabling with program information. A raffle will be held with an assortment of prizes, provided by event sponsors.
Rockland workers, residents and cyclists are invited to pedal over to Chapman Park and spend the morning celebrating the arrival of bicycling season.
