Call OCCA Special Projects Manager Martha Clarvoe, (607) 547-4020, to learn more.
The aim of Bike to Work Day is to encourage people to choose an alternative “green” mode of transportation – biking, walking or even skateboarding – to get to work or school, to run errands, or just for fun on May 21 in particular and as a lifestyle choice in general.
The Sixth Annual Bike to Work Day for Otsego County will be held on Wednesday, May 21 with check-in sites at more than 20 locations countywide. For th second year, organizers of the event – Otsego Regional Cycling Advocates (ORCA), a committee of Otsego County Conservation Association (OCCA) – have joined forces with the National Bike Challenge, presented by the League of American Bicyclists.
Every time National Bike Challenge participants get on their bike, their miles count toward the 30-million-mile goal. Whether for fitness, fun, or transportation, or whether riding as an individual or in a team, Otsego County bicyclists are invited to join and log miles on nationalbikechallenge.org and should look for “Otsego Regional Cycling Advocates Bike Challenge” to sign up as part of the local effort. Miles pedaled on a stationary bike or trainer do not count.
ORCA meets the second or third Wednesday of each month in the OCCA satellite office at 101 Main Street, Cooperstown, in the Red Cross Wing next to Cooperstown Farmers' Market (Pioneer Alley).
Please call (607) 547-4020 for confirmation of meeting dates and times.
