It's only a few days until Bike Week! It's not too late to sign up for the MassCommute Bicycle Challenge, a friendly competition to encourage people across the area to try bicycling for regular transportation, especially as part of your commute. Try a trip next week (or log the trips you already make) and get in the running to win some prizes.
If you participated last year, there is no need to register again, just log in! If not, register here. Last year, cyclists across Massachusetts logged nearly 150,000 miles. Can we make 200,000 this year? Maybe, if you sign up and bike a lot!
We'll also have our Bike Breakfasts. Take a moment during your commute to have a coffee, a bite to eat and chat with your fellow bike commuters and TMA staff (one in the same; the TMA has a 67% bike to work mode share). Bike breakfasts will be held at the following times and locations:

Not sure if you're ready to bike? Check out our free webinar this Thursday, with tips on bike commuting.
Finally, make sure you come to the Bike Bash on June 1 from 5:30 to 7:30. We're back at Flat Top Johnny's, so it's super-convenient to Kendall, and we're glad that FTJ's is back open after water damage from a fire last fall. We'll see you there!
