What is the Bike to Work Day Festival?
Boston’s National Bike to Work Day Festival celebrates National Bike to Work Day. It's our way of saying, “Thanks for riding your bike today.” We think it’s important to celebrate everyone who rides in Boston. We also want to make it fun for experienced and new bike commuters by organizing convoys and a festival. We celebrate from 7 to 9 a.m.
Because you rode your bike, you’ll get a free breakfast and coffee amid an expo in downtown Boston. Join a convoy or just show up for the fun. Going to work after the event is optional.
Stop by the festival any time between 7 and 9 a.m. yo join the fun! Breakfast is only for cyclists. Please be prepared to show us your bike, helmet, or Bluebikes key.
Registration is free. We encourage you to register so convoy leaders know who to expect. Registration allows you to reserve a free t-shirt, too. Knowing how many people to expect also helps us ensure that we have enough food for everyone.
Registration closed on Wednesday, May 18 at 5 p.m. You can still participate in the fun by showing up in Downtown Crossing!
People arrive at Boston's National Bike to Work Day Festival energized from riding and ready to ask questions about your organization and products. The open tent atmosphere is great for engaging area residents.
We welcome you to set up a tent, provide product samples, or host a free services tent. Your tent can offer food, bike repair, or anything else that’s fun and relevant!
We are no longer accepting new exhibitors for the festival. See you next year!
Lead a convoy of riders from an assigned meeting point to the event with designated "pickup points" along the way. Volunteers are expected to welcome and introduce riders, know the route, and maintain a safe environment for participants. Timing is roughly 6:30 a.m. to when you arrive at the event. View the convoy routes.
We have organized all of the convoys for this year. See you at the festival!
Welcome incoming riders at the event by helping to set up, distribute t-shirts and snacks, or put everything away after the party. We also welcome one or two great photographers to document the event! You'll be needed from 6:30 a.m. - 9 a.m.
We've got all the volunteers we need for 2022. Thanks for your interest!
