Summit County Bike to Work Day on June 27
Summit County and the Physical Activity and Nutrition Team of the Summit (PANTS) invite people to participate in 2018 Bike to Work Day on Wednesday, June 27. Bicycle commuters can receive free breakfast, get simple bike tune-ups by local bike mechanics and enter prize drawings.
Summit County has celebrated Bike to Work Day since 2010, and hundreds of commuters participate each year. PANTS began partnering with the County in 2014, helping to grow the event’s participation and activity offerings.
“Bike to Work day takes a myriad of partners to happen,” said Open Space & Trails resource specialist Michael Wurzel. “Open space is excited so many people want to participate in this great opportunity to show how wonderful the recreation path is, both for recreation and commuting.”
All cyclists are welcome to stop by any (or all) of the eight breakfast stations between 7 and 10 a.m. for a free light breakfast. The breakfast stations will be at the following locations:
