Bike to Work Day

We look forward to celebrating Boston’s National Bike to Work Day Festival in May 2022.



Registration is not currently available.

Registration is free. We encourage you to register so we know to expect you and have a t-shirt ready for you. It will also help us ensure that we have enough food for everyone.

Breakfast is only for cyclists. Please be prepared to show us your bike, helmet, or Bluebikes key.


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. By having a presence at these celebrations, riders will see that your organization supports a bike-friendly community.

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.


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.

Because you rode your bike, you’ll get a free breakfast and coffee amid an expo at Pemberton Square. Join a convoy or just show up for the fun. Going to work after the event is optional.


We need a big team of volunteers for this event, and it is so fun to participate. You can volunteer as a ride leader or as a greeter at Pemberton Square

Ride Leaders

Lead a convoy of riders from an assigned meeting point to Pemberton Square 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 Pemberton Square. View the convoy routes.

Plaza Volunteers

Welcome incoming riders at Pemberton Square 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. If you are interested in helping out on the plaza, email
