Sugar Land Celebrates Bike to Work Day and School Day

Sugar Land, TX - Shape Up Fort Bend and the city of Sugar Land will celebrate National Bike Month on Friday, May 10 with the ninth annual Bike to Work Day and fifth annual Bike to School Day.

Join residents, neighbors and friends for a celebratory ride from Sugar Land Memorial Park, 15300 University Blvd., to Fort Settlement Middle School, 5440 Elkins Road, and Sugar Land Town Square near U.S. Highway 59 and State Highway 6. 

The event begins at 7:30 a.m. with fun, food and prizes at the South Meadow Pavilion at Sugar Land’s Memorial Park adjacent to the Pawm Springs Dog Park. 

Following a safety briefing at 8:25 a.m., all participants will ride 1.1 miles to Fort Settlement Middle School via University Boulevard. After dropping off students, Bike to Work Day participants will continue another 6.4 miles to Sugar Land Town Square via Commonwealth, Austin Parkway and Lexington Boulevard.

The closing celebration at Sugar Land Town Square will include a proclamation recognizing Bike Month, Bike to Work and School Day, a group photo, food and more.

Participants must pre-register and bring their own bicycles and helmets to participate.

Bike to Work and School Day takes place during National Bike Month. National Bike Month is celebrated nationwide and is an opportunity for local cyclists to spread awareness of bicycling opportunities in the community and to share the efforts toward making the city of Sugar Land a safe environment for bicyclists.  It is also an ideal time to stress the importance of knowing and following state and local laws that apply to bicyclists, sharing the road legally with motorists and demonstrating the bicycle as a useful form of transportation. 

Visit “Share the Road Sugar Land” at www.sugarlandtx.gov/sharetheroad for educational resources focusing on road safety.  The webpage is intended to help everyone safely use city roads and sidewalks whether in a vehicle, on a bike or on foot.

The city of Sugar Land encourages all riders to wear bright clothing, travel in the direction of traffic, stop at all stop signs and traffic lights, and follow all traffic laws.
