What better way to participate in National Bike Month in May than by getting on a bicycle and pedaling as part of the 21st annual Bay Area Bike to Work Day on Thursday, May 14?
Bike to Work Day will give Bay Area residents the opportunity to try bike commuting, lower their carbon footprint and help reduce traffic congestion.
Complete information about Bike to Work Day is available at youcanbikethere.com.
This year, Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf and San Jose Mayor Sam Liccardo have marked their first National Bike Month in office by issuing a challenge to each other and their cities for a “Bike Off” — to see which city’s employees and residents can bike more during Bike Month in May.
City employees and residents will be able to record their bike trips via teambikechallenge.com.
Now celebrating its 21st year, Bike to Work Day has put more people on the road to bicycle commuting than any other event in the Bay Area. Over 400 energizer stations across the nine Bay Area counties will be ready to greet bicycle commuters with free beverages, snacks, giveaways and encouragement.
Located along popular local bike commute routes and at many transit stations, energizer stations will be open during morning commute hours and many will reopen for the evening commute. A full list of stations is available at youcanbikethere.com/energizer.
