Hundreds of bicycle commuters converged to Market Square on the morning of Friday, May 20, for the City of Alexandria’s Bike to Work Day.  Regionally 11,000 commuters took to the streets - the impressive turn-out was the largest in the regional event’s history and helped spread the message of finding alternatives to driving in single-occupancy vehicles.  A big thank you to Alexandria's local sponsors and exhibitors.  For the grand prize raffle, Bicycle Pro Shop generously donated 3 deluxe bicycle tune-ups, Wheel Nuts Bike Shop provided a commuter bicycle, and Hotel Monaco donated a free weekend stay at the hotel.  The following are all of the sponsors and exhibtors which made this event so successful.
