Bike to Work Week is May 11th thru May 15th. Here's what I know so far about Bike to Work Week and Day, 2009 in Duluth. (I'll add more if more info becomes available)
From Fitgers, KQDS, 92.1 Lite FM and Continental Ski and Bike & Red Rock Radio
"Fitgers, KQDS, 92.1 Lite FM and Continental Ski and Bike & Red Rock Radio have joined together in an effort to encourage Duluthians to ride to work!
We're hosting "BIKE TO WORK DAY" all day at Fitgers, Friday, May 15th.
We'll have free gift bags for cyclists (full of cool stuff), free safety checks, free Fitger's coffee & food, prizes and local celebs! We encourage cyclists to challenge their co-workers and pledge that they'll ride to work for Western Lake Superior Habitat for Humanity. The cyclist with the most pledges will win a bike from Continental.
Pledge forms available at Fitger's front desk, Continental Ski and Bike or Red Rock Radio.
For more information stop by Continental Ski and Bike - behind Plaza Walgreens - 1305 East First Street - 218 728-4466 www.continentalskiandbike.com"
