The Town of Hilton Head Island and the Hilton Head Island Chamber of Commerce have announced that Friday May 20th is “National Bike To Work (or Play) Day”, so get ready to hop on your bicycle and head to work or your favorite Island play spot.

Promoted by the League of American Bicyclists, which recently recognized the Town of Hilton Head Island as a silver level Bicycle Friendly Community, “National Bike to Work (or Play) Day” is held to emphasize that bicycling to work (or play) has many benefits such as increasing your activity level, improving air quality, reducing motorized vehicle impacts, and saving money.

To promote resident and visitor participation in “National Bike to Work (or Play) Day” on Friday, May 20th there will be four temporary energizer stations along the Town's bike path network. Refreshments will be provided by three local bicycle shops: The Bike Doctor, Go Tri Sports and Roadfish, and will be available at stations that will be set up along the bike path near their shops between 7am and 10am.

Employees of the Town and the Chamber of Commerce will be pedaling to work on Friday, May 20th and encourage you, your co-workers, friends, family and visitors to pedal, too. It's a fun and healthy way to spend your day and show your support and celebrate Hilton Head Island’s award for “Bicycle Friendly Community.”
