Bike to Work Day 2017
On Thursday May 11, 2017 tens of thousands of regular and first-time Bay Area residents will bike to work for the 23rd Annual Bike to Work Day, part of National Bike Month.
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.
Interested in taking part? Visit the links on the right (or below, if on your mobile phone) to learn how SVBC can help you get your bike tuned up and ready to go, maps of Energizer Stations, how to get involved as a volunteer, and a full list of bike-friendly events happening in May in Santa Clara and San Mateo County.
You can do it
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.
Do it for fun
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 our Virtual Route Scouts program to see how you can get to school, a local farmers market, or any destinations you may have planned.
