Celebrate Indianapolis' Bike to Work Day every May, presented by Bicycle Indiana and IndyGo, and promote cleaner air, less congestion and a healthy lifestyle. Organized commuter rides with experienced Indianapolis cyclists will depart from different locations around the Indianapolis metropolitan area. If you prefer to ride solo, there are plenty of bike paths and lanes for added safety and ease.
On June 5, 2010, Mayor Greg Ballard again led the 2nd Annual Mayor's Bike Ride with other Indianapolis cyclists. This was a free, public event created to help citizens get acquainted with the city's on-street bike lanes connecting downtown to the Eastside, the Westside, Greenways and the Cultural Trail.

Mayor Greg Ballard was joined today by Mike Terry, President and CEO of IndyGo, Nancy Tibbett, Executive Director of Bicycle Indiana, and Joshua Gonzales, with INShape Indiana, to welcome the hundreds of cyclists who participated in the Sixth Annual Bike to Work Day in Indianapolis.
"There is no question that more bicycle traffic on Indy streets means healthier people, cleaner air and less congestion," said Mayor Ballard. "It is a great opportunity to showcase the steps the City has taken to make Indianapolis a more bicycle-friendly, pedestrian-friendly and a more sustainable city overall. We are committed to continuing these improvements throughout Indianapolis"
