In an effort to support alternative means of commuting to work, Lincoln Laboratory has an active Cycling Community and a Cycle to Work Committee.

This group of Laboratory cyclists promotes bicycle commuting improvements at the Laboratory, organizes events for Bay State Bike Week, maintains available bicycling resources, and advocates for bicycling in local communities.
