Annual Bike to Work Day in the SF Bay Area is Thursday, May 14th
Bike to Work Day takes place all over Northern California with all nine Bay Area counties participating in the celebration. The event is just one of many taking place in May as part of National Bike Month.
Take the Bike to Work Day pledge to bike at least once to work (or play) during the month of May for your chance to win a new Larkspur Bicycle by Marin Bikes, Novara Commuter Kit from REI, and many other bike-related prizes. Register by May 31st to enter and win.
The East Bay Bicycle Coalition has lots of information and links on their website, including a list and map of Energizer Stations in Alameda County that will provide free beverages, snacks, and good cheer to bicyclists (tip: there will be pancakes at Frank Ogawa Plaza).
San Francisco Energizer Stations are listed here.
Los Angeles County has a cool bike-to-work calculator on their website that estimates how much gas and carbon dioxide emissions you save by choosing to bike instead of drive.
There are no special events listed for Orange County, but don't let that stop you folks down in Newport Beach. The League of American Bicyclists is promoting Bike-to-Work Week from May 11 - 15 and national Bike-to-Work Day on Friday, May 15. So get your bike out, form a convoy, and start rollin'!
