Bike to Work Week 2021

Anoka County Bike to Work Week 

June 14 - 18, 2021

In past years, Anoka County Bike to Work Week has been hosted in June. The League of American Bicyclists has always hosted National Bike Month in May and encouraged community partners to host bike events during this time. This year they have decided to encourage biking and connecting with others virtually September 21 - 25. 

Anoka County will be celebrating Bike to Work Week this week too using the hashtag #BikesUnite. We ask that you also use the hashtag #AnokaCountyBikeWeek so everyone will see Anoka County is participating. Plus, we're giving away some amazing prizes. Each participant will receive a free bike goodie bag, t-shirt, and complimentary breakfast.

Grand Prize Winner will receive a FREE Bike of up to $1,000 worth. Plus we'll be giving away prizes all week.
