In case you didn’t know, this coming Friday, May 15th is Bike to Work Day 2009, the free annual event co-sponsored by Commuter Connections and the Washington Area Bicyclist Association (WABA). The good folks at the Metropolitan Washington Council of Governments have given CultureMob the heads up that several local politicos – including U.S. Department of Energy Secretary Steven Chu, U.S. Department of Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood, and U.S. Representative Gerald Connolly (D-VA), along with “other elected officials and leaders” – will join up with the thousands of participating area bicyclists to ride onto their cubicles from 26 designated pit stops in Washington, DC, Maryland and Virginia. They are as follows:
