    25th Annual Bike to Work Day 2019

     

    More than 100,000 new and seasoned bike commuters will celebrate the 25th annual Bay Area Bike to Work Day, Thursday, May 9.
    With some 400 energizer stations scattered throughout nine Bay Area counties, riders can make a pit stop on their way to work for free refreshments and encouragement from thousands of volunteers. Complete event information, including energizer station locations, is available at Bayareabiketowork.com.
    “The Bay Area’s 25th Bike to Work Day celebration is a great time to appreciate how biking has become a bigger piece of the transportation puzzle,” said Scott Haggerty, chairman of the Metropolitan Transportation Commission (MTC), a presenting sponsor of the event. “And while riding a bike is good for you and the environment, frankly it is just plain fun.”
    Local bike groups and employers are planning a range of activities throughout the day and into the evening, including group rides and after-work happy hours. Local elected officials — including several commissioners from (MTC) and the Bay Area Toll Authority (BATA) — will participate in the event.
    Early event participants tuned into social media will be able to collect air miles from Alaska Airlines.
