All bicyclists are welcome to join one of the free Bike to Work Day convoys which are led by experienced volunteer bicycle commuters.  Although you need to register for Bike to Work Day, you don’t have to sign up to participate in a convoy. If you would like to join a convoy, simply meet the convoy group at the start location at the start time, or hop on anywhere along their route as they pedal on by.  Stay with a convoy to its final destination or hop off  anywhere along the route to suit your convenience. Convoy leaders will leave promptly according to their start time, so please arrive at the start location for your convoy 10-15 minutes early.
