April 24, 2005 (PRLEAP.COM) Sports News
In support of the Washington Area Bicyclists Association (WABA) and the Washington Area Council of Governments (COG) cycling advocacy programs, Todson the U.S. distributors of the world-renowned Topeak cycling accessories brand and OnGuard premier lock line is sponsoring “Bike to Work Day 2005”.

Todson urges folks to get out and ride in the D.C. area on “Bike to Work Day 2005” which will be held on Friday, May 20th. Bikers begin with a rally at Freedom Plaza in downtown Washington, D.C. and ride on through 20 pit stops where they’ll have an opportunity to grab some great Topeak bike gear or one of OnGuard’s vicious, pick-proof locks, compliments of Todson.

“We really appreciate Todson’s support and help in making BTW Day in the D.C. region a growing success,” noted Phil Koopman of City Bikes, Inc.

According to Neal Todrys, president of Todson, Inc. and distributor of Topeak and OnGuard lines, “Bike to Work Day is a terrific and certainly timely concept with the cost of gasoline rising daily. As a nation, we’re very complacent with automated travel, which is not very good for the environment or our health. We need to switch gears and get riding.”
