About

Bay State Bike Week is an annual springtime bicycling event that takes place throughout Massachusetts. It is a celebration of bicycling as a great mode of transportation that is safe, economical, healthy, environmentally-friendly, and fun. Anyone can participate by hosting an event or by participating in an event.

Bay State Bike Week is a partnership between MassDOT, Massachusetts Bicycle Coalition (MassBike), and MassRIDES.

MassDOT

A strong commitment to bicycle transportation is a key part of MassDOT’s sustainable transportation vision to reduce traffic congestion, improve air quality and promote healthy lifestyles.  The MassDOT mode shift goal seeks to triple the share of bicycling, walking and public transit use by 2030. MassDOT will continue to work to expand the bicycle transportation network, including the establishment of the Bay State Greenway (BSG), a 780-mile, seven-corridor network of on-road and off-road facilities.
