Happening Now Through Noon: Bike to Work Day at VIDA Fitness
Friday May 21, 2021
Thousands of DC commuters will leave their cars at home today, May 21 to take part in the safe return of Bike to Work Day (BTWD), boosting their physical and mental health during the free annual event’s 20th anniversary. Many of this year’s BTWD participants are telecommuters who plan on biking to a local pit stop to pick up their free t-shirt before heading back home to start the workday. VIDA Fitness City Vista is hosting the BTWD in Mount Vernon Triangle! They are also located on the new protected bicycle lane along K Street, making it a breeze to safely get to and from the gym (and Bike to Work Day). While at VIDA, grab some prepackaged snacks and check out all that their gym has to offer! The first 15,000 registrants who attend will receive the Bike to Work Day 2021 t-shirt.
Safety measures in compliance with CDC guidelines will be in effect at all pit stop locations to ensure participants and volunteers remain safe. Precautions include:
- Zero-tolerance mask enforcement
- Pre-selected check-in times for staggered arrival times, with 25-30 bicyclists per 30-minute timeslot
- Physical distancing requirements, including six-foot distancing, one-way traffic flow, hand sanitizer stations, and appropriate signage
