Bay Area Bike to Work Day • May 10 2018
More than 90 Energizer Stations in Santa Clara County and 40 in San Mateo County will give people on bikes a chance to stop and get a snack, a tote bag, goodies, and a few words of encouragement.
Stop at our energizer station on Marshlands Road at Don Edwards San Francisco Bay National Wildlife Refuge in Fremont from 7:00 am to 9:00 am and pick up a free tote bag, while supplies last.
It sounds simple because it is. Almost 40 percent of Bay Area commuters live within just five miles of their workplace, a bike-able distance for even inexperienced cyclists. If every person living this close to their workplace ditched their cars on Bike to Work Day alone, more than 60,000 vehicles would be off the road, reducing tailpipe emissions by more than 150,000 pounds. Everyone’s commute is improved when people ride a bike.
Leave the car at home, dust off the bike, and enjoy your commute for once, and then celebrate after work at the Bike Away from Work Bash!
Don’t limit yourself to just bicycle commuting to work. Try riding your bike whenever possible during the month of May. Use Silicon Valley Bicycle Coalition's Virtual Route Scouts program to see how you can get to school, a local farmers market, or any destinations you may have planned.
