2015 Bike to Work and School Day is May 15

The Cape Girardeau Parks and Recreation Foundation will hold its first ever Bike to Work and School Day on May 15, which is National Bike to Work Day. This free event encourages everybody to ride their bikes for a day and head to work or school with a little more physical activity.

May is also recognized as National Bike Month.

A kickoff will be held at the Osage Centre that morning. Free breakfast for participants begins at 6:15 a.m. Participants will also receive free t-shirts, can sign up for raffle prizes, register their bicycles with the Cape Girardeau Police Department, visit the complementary bike doctor from CycleWerx, stop by the information booth offered by Cape Bike & Fitness, pick up educational information from the Healthy Communities Coalition, and more!

Cape Girardeau’s Mayor Harry Rediger will start us off with a motivational speech, followed by comments from the Parks and Recreation board members. Then, we will head on our way to work and school. Free coffee or ice tea will be available all day for cyclists at Cup N Cork.

Get your co-workers involved to win a prize!  The facility with the most employees that show up to the kickoff at the Osage Center will win!
