The City of Sugar Land celebrated its inaugural Bike to Work Day on Friday, May 18, 2012, with 17 riders on a 3.5-mile group ride from Imperial Park to City Hall.
The ride was open to all members of the community, and all participants brought their own bikes and helmets. Riders were briefed on cycling safety and had the chance to talk to local bike shops about any questions before setting out.
Patrick Walsh, Director of Transportation and Long-Range Planning for the City of Sugar Land, said, “The ride was a good step in Sugar Land’s gradual transition to becoming more bike-friendly, ultimately making cycling a safer and more accepted form of transportation in the City.”
