Valparaiso’s Bike to Work Week May 14 - 18, 2018

The Valpo Parks and Valparaiso Pathways Committee invites community members to celebrate National Bike to Work Week by pedaling to work during the week of May 14-18. Community members are also invited to a Bike to Work Event from 8:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. on Friday, May 18th at Central Park Plaza in downtown Valparaiso. The event will include a free bicycle check by Leo’s Mobile Bicycle Service, the opportunity to test ride a Valpo Velocity bikeshare bicycle, the chance to win fun prizes, refreshments and more!

The Valpo Parks provides more than 18 miles of maintained pathways for an easy, local commute. According to the United States Census Bureau, the number of people who traveled to work by bike increased 60% over the last decade. The National Bicycle Association reports 40% of all trips in the United States are less than two miles, making bicycling a feasible and fun way to get to work.

The Valpo Parks encourages residents to show their support of the national event by posting their ride-to-work photos, mileage and bike-friendly businesses on the Valparaiso Pathways Facebook page.

Maps and plans for local and regional pathways can be found at www.ValpoParks.org or www.nirpc.org. For more information about Valparaiso Pathways, contact the Valpo Parks office at 219.462.5144 or email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
