Would you like to get outside, improve your fitness, save money, and contribute to a cleaner environment? Do you live within five miles of work (or a SMART station or bus stop)? Give bicycle commuting a try!
On Bike to Work Day, Energizer Stations are set up during the morning commute (6-9 am) along cycling routes throughout the county, offering riders snacks, swag, and encouragement. It’s a party on two wheels!
EMPLOYERS – Why should you encourage your workers to cycle? And what are the best ways to do so? Check out our Employer Toolkit!
While Bike to Work Day is the highlight of the month, we have plenty of other activities throughout May to encourage folks who ride.
Bike Commuter of the Year
Each of the nine Bay Area counties crowns one dedicated and inspiring individual as “Bike Commuter of the Year.” Last year’s winner from Sonoma County was Dr. Tracey Jones, a specialist in Physical & Rehabilitation Medicine at Kaiser. Read about her here.
Bike-Friendly Business of the Year
In 2108 we offered our first Bike Friendly Business Award to Jackson Family Wines – read about them here. How can YOU make your workplace more bike-friendly? Check out these suggestions! We’ll open nominations for the 2019 award in March.
