Bike to Work Day






Join us for Bike to Work Day Thursday, May 9!

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.

Bay Area Team Bike Challenge

Form a team of up to ten coworkers or friends and compete for the most miles ridden through the month of May – increase your motivation, win prizes, and have fun! More info here: Bay Area Bike Challenge

Bike Commuter of the Year

Each of the nine Bay Area counties crowns one dedicated and inspiring individual as “Bike Commuter of the Year.” The 2019 Sonoma County BCOY is…drumroll please…Sgt. Dave Thompson of the Sonoma County Sheriff’s Office! In addition to commuting between his Windsor home and the Sheriff’s Office, “Deputy Dave” volunteers with our Safe Routes to School program, helping teach children how to ride safely and responsibly. Read more about him here.

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 our tips for a bike friendly workplace. We will be announcing the winner soon!
