Mark your calendar for Bike to Work Day, May 9

Posted on April 29, 2019 at 4:29 pm by Peter Ibrahim

The 25th Annual Bike to Work Day is coming Thursday, May 9, 2019. Join in on the fun as the entire Bay Area bikes to work together as part of National Bike Month in May. Biking is a great way to avoid traffic congestion, get exercise, save money and just plain have fun! Although these events are only during May, do consider biking during the rest of the year as another commute option to supplement or replace some driving trips.

In order to help fuel your journeys that morning, stop by any of the participating energizer stations throughout the Bay Area. These stations are generously sponsored by local cities and businesses and have tote bags, water, snacks and other fun goodies!
