It is Bike to Work Day here in the San Francisco bay! Today commuters have ditched their gas powered modes of transportation for two wheels.
Bike to Work Day is all about encouraging people to hop on their bikes and take advantage of the healthy and environmentally friendly options a bike can provide. Here in the bay area about 1 million residents live within 5 miles of their workplace—hello, ideal bike commute! It’s hard to argue a reason not to ride when the numbers are taken into consideration.
In addition to getting people to use their bikes more often, Bike to Work Day is also about having fun. Today there will be energizer stations set up all over the bay providing riders with snacks, refreshments, freebies and lots of encouragement!
