Boston Bikeweek 1998:
Sunday, May 17th to Saturday, May 23rd

Bikeweek is a national event to celebrate and encourage bicycling. With a theme of "Bike to work, to school, to play, to health," we have teamed with employers, schools, health care providers and fitness centers, and the bicycle industry to host events that encourage more bicycle use. The Boston Bicycle Festival takes place Friday, May 22nd and features bicycle exhibits, an eccentric bicycle display, food and entertainment, and an address by the Mayor of Boston.

There will be bicycle commuter breakfasts every morning during the week. Several sightseeing evening and weekend bike rides are also planned.

This year's celebration is a joint effort of the Boston Transportation Department; the Artery Business Committee TMA; Bikes Not Bombs; Boston University Medical Center/ITMA; Brookline Bicycle Advisory Committee; the City of Cambridge; CommuteWorks, MASCO; EarthWorks Projects; Hostelling International ENEC; the Massachusetts Bicycle Coalition; and the Seaport TMA.

More events are being added! Check for up-to-date information:
