WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. (May 14, 2013) — The West Palm Beach Downtown Development Authority (DDA) invites downtown neighbors and professionals to "go green" and kick-start their human-powered commutes for National Bike To Work Day on Friday, May 17 from 7 a.m. to 9 a.m.

The eco-friendly event will feature two organized bike convoys where cyclists can meet up with other participants and leisurely bike to work together towards the Clematis District. South end commuters will meet at 7:30 a.m. on the corner of Flagler Dr. and Southern Blvd. Those traveling from the north will meet at 7:30 a.m. at This is It Cafe, located at 444 24th St.

"With our beautiful waterfront trails and convenient bike parking, getting to downtown West Palm Beach on two wheels is not only enjoyable and easy, but it's also socially and environmentally conscious," said DDA Executive Director Raphael Clemente. "We hope that downtown's participation in National Bike to Work Day helps showcase the benefits bicycling has on decreasing traffic congestion and environmental impact, while encouraging healthier lifestyles."

"Bike to Work" participants are invited to break up their commute at the DDA checkpoint located at Waterfront Commons at 100 Clematis St. anytime between 7 a.m. and 9 a.m. The checkpoint will offer free water bottles to thirsty riders, in addition to other bike-friendly giveaways. As an added bonus, participants who check in at the DDA tent will receive special prizes and vouchers to be redeemed at downtown businesses throughout the day. Incentives include $10 gift cards to both Dunkin' Donuts at City Center and Duffy's Sports Grill on Clematis Street, plus a complimentary beer from one of the area's newest restaurants, Barrel & Grain. Quantities are limited and on a first-come, first-serve basis.

Sponsors of the downtown West Palm Beach effort include the DDA, City of West Palm Beach Sustainability Initiatives department, Bill Bone Bike Law, South Florida Commuter Services and City of West Palm Beach Parking department.

For more information on bicycling around downtown West Palm Beach and parking options such as bike racks and locker rentals in the Clematis District, call (561) 833-8873 or visit westpalmbeachdda.com/bike-friendly.
