California Bike to Work Week

Over 100,000 cyclists expected to participate in California Bike to Work Week, May 16-20 -- and it's FREE

05.16.05
California

In Los Angeles, Bike to Work Day will begin with the "Blessing of the Bicycles" at Good Samaritan Hospital. In the San Francisco Bay Area, riders will be supported with 183 Energizer Stations. Down in San Diego, cyclists can pause during their bicycle commute for a free massage. In Orange County, participants will have a chance to win Southwest Airlines tickets. And in the state capital, Sacramento's annual "Ride Around the Capital" may even attract a bicycling Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger.

"Bike to Work Day is a great opportunity for people who don't normally commute by bicycle to give it a try," says K.C. Butler, organizer of Californias Bike Commute Week. "High gas prices, rising obesity, stress are all good reasons to leave the car at home and bicycle to work. And on Bike to Work Day we make it easy with free food, great support and a chance to win all kinds of prizes."

Plus, for those whose commutes may be too long to complete entirely by bicycle, San Diego Regions' MTDB and NCTD will be offering free bus and trolley rides to Bike to Work Day participants as will L.A. County's Metro busses and trains. And the Alameda Ferry is providing free rides to cyclists, as well.

For food, ZonePerfect will be providing great tasting energy bars to anyone who stops in at any of the hundreds of Bike to Work Day ZonePerfect rest stops or energizer stations. 7-Eleven has provided Bike to Work Day organizers with "Big Eats" sandwich coupons. There's even a free pancake breakfast during Oakland's Bike to Work Day.
