Bike to Work Week, May 11-15

Across the country, May is recognized as “Bike Month,” by the League of American Cyclists and the Town of Huntington is getting on board for this year’s Bike to Work Week event. 

The Bike To Work Week event began on Monday, May 11 and will end with “Bike to Work Day” on Friday, May 15th. This is the League of American Cyclists 59th year promoting this nationally recognized event and the Town of Huntington is happy to join its fellow American cyclists during this momentous month. 

I would also like to encourage residents who commute by train to take advantage of the Town’s Bicycle Locker Program. Bicycle Lockers are available at all four LIRR stations in an effort to provide a green and environmentally friendly mode of transportation and ease traffic congestion. These lockers are self-contained, secure and protect your bicycle from elements of weather. Commuting to the train station by bicycle could also be faster than driving and in renting one of these lockers no time is wasted looking for a parking space. 

For information on these bicycle lockers and/or anyone interested in leasing one, please contact the Town Clerk’s Office at (631) 351-3206 or visit the Town website – HuntingtonNY.gov. 

The road to a healthier lifestyle could be the one right outside your front door. So leave the car at home, grab that bike and helmet, and who knows, you just might find a healthier regimen for that workday commute.
