Bike To Work Day Is Tomorrow

By Nuala Sawyer - Published on May 07, 2014.
Every year around this time the city starts humming about Bike to Work Week. Whether you're a Bike to Work Day pro and already have your energizer stations mapped out for maximum snackage, or if you're a novice who hasn't yet biked to work, we've got the lowdown on what the 20th annual Bike to Work Day actually entails.

First of all, there will be free snacks (we know everyone loves free snacks). "Energizer Stations" will be posted around the city, sponsored by SF Bike Coalition. Each will be staffed with a team of volunteers who will be handing out snacks, tote bags, and goodies like stickers. If you're nice, they might even pump up your tires and give you a high-five. 

Here's a map of all the Energizer Stations. Morning stations will be open from 7:30am-9:30am, and evening commute stations will be open from 5pm-7pm. If you need a little tune-up, SF Bike Coalition is offering those at the following stations for free. 

Bike to Work Day also gives you a chance to get to know your neighbors. If you're new to city commuting via bike, or are just craving some company on your morning commute, consider joining a Commuter Convoy. There's a convoy for each district that will escort you downtown, departing at 7:45am. 

If you work on the Peninsula, there's a very special Commuter Convoy just for you. Ditch the Google Bus tomorrow and join the SF2G cycling group. Departing from 24th and Mission at 6:30am, the ride will take you down the Peninsula to Mountain View, Palo Alto, Sunnyvale, and everywhere in between. This is a "no-drop" ride, so don't be afraid to join in if you haven't done it before (you won't be left behind). 

Finally, you can also use this day as an opportunity to consider becoming a SF Bike Coalition member. If you need some really good reasons, just check out the list of local San Francisco businesses where you get discounts

And as always, stay safe and enjoy the ride.
