A little birdie told us there will be some giveaways from Planet Bike, Bicycle Benefits, 20by2020, Saris, and more! That may be subject to change, but we’ll be sure to report the details as we receive them.
Anyone interested in attending the event should RSVP on the website: www.choosetocommute.org The site was recently launched so more information on presenters, etc. will be updated as the details get ironed out.
We’re super excited and plan on being at each event taking photos and actively participating with the folks who come out to the event. Cassandra is actually assisting in planning the event on behalf of 20by2020, so we of course will have the most up to date info on the event!
