That’s all we ask from you. We know you can do it.

Bike to Work Week is an opportunity to challenge yourself, your friends, and family to ditch your car and commute to work in the healthiest, cheapest, and most eco-friendly way possible – bike! Join us for daily happenings courtesy of the City of West Palm Beach, South Florida Commuter Services (SFCS), and all of its sponsors and partners.
