Due to the possibility of flooding in the forecast, organizers of National Bike to Work Day events around the Baltimore metro region said Friday's happenings have been canceled.

The Baltimore Metropolitan Council—which coordinates regional initiatives in Baltimore City and Anne Arundel, Baltimore, Carroll, Harford and Howard counties—posted the following announcement on its website Thursday:

The Baltimore Metropolitan Council (BMC) recommends the cancellation of regional Bike To Work Day events for Friday, May 16. The recommendation factored in the threat of heavy rain, flash flooding and thunderstorms in tomorrow’s forecast and therefore safety concerns for participants.

Many of the Bike To Work Day site coordinators throughout the Baltimore region already decided to cancel events. They also are in the process of evaluating rescheduling options. Stay tuned as we update this list of events.
