What a week it was! We had over 140 events this year, taking place from the Cape to the Berkshires, ranging from bike rides to film festivals to bike breakfasts! The MassCommute Bicycle Challenge finished with over 143,000 miles pledged, with the Dana Farber Cancer Institute just barely beating out MIT Lincoln Labs. And the week of events was capped off on Tuesday with the announcement of Massachusetts being ranked as the third most bicycle-friendly state in the country.
We would love to have any updates, pictures or stories from the week! You can email them to firstname.lastname@example.org, or post them to our Facebook wall. You can also tweet at us using @baystatebikewk. Check below for a few pictures from the week!
We need to give a huge thanks to our partners, MassDOT and MassRIDES. It is through that partnership that we were able to provide the T-shirts, ankle bands, bells and stickers that make this week of events truly remarkable.

By participating in this brief survey, you will not only be entered into a raffle to win great prizes, you will also be helping to ensure successful bike weeks in the future!
Finally, we just want to note that a lot of staff time and resources go into making this week a success. If you value the events and goodies that we make possible every year, please consider donating today. It is only through your support that we can make Massachusetts a little more bike friendly each year.
