bicycle, pedestrian, and other active transportation and recreation
modes from around Texas and the world...and this year's conference is

National Bike Month includes an ever-expanding
diversity of events in communities nationwide - but the biggest day of
the month is Bike to Work Day (BTWD). AAMPO is spearheading BTWD around
the region on May 15, 2020! It's a celebration of bicycles as a fun and
healthy way to get to work, as well as an opportunity for those who
don’t usually bike commute to try it out. With increased interest
around the world in healthy, sustainable and economic transportation
options, the question should really be “Why not bike to work?”
Want to lend a hand? BTWD
planning is underway! Reach out to Joey Pawlik about
getting involved at (210) 230-6931 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
