Bike to Work Week is approaching again! Green Options Portage County (GoPoCo), a Portage County Can group, formed in 2014 to promote National Bike to School and Work Week across the community. They encourage and advertise local businesses to participate in the festivities by organizing employee bike rides, giving out promotional items, and the like. Their efforts last year were highly successful, and we’re hoping for an even higher turnout this May!
This year, we are hoping to generate even greater community wide participation in raising awareness of the benefits of biking and walking. We encourage you to join Portage County CAN, goPoCo and the efforts to implement the County’s Bicycle and Pedestrian Plan.
The events will take place the first two weeks of May. We hope you will take advantage of this opportunity to participate in anyway you can.
