Although National Bike Month is still underway and all bike riders are encouraged to keep on riding, the official Bike to Work Day for the Bay Area has ended in celebration and cheers. Energizer stations were booming with activity, many Bay Area residents were taking to the streets on their bicycles, and Mother Nature delivered us a picture perfect riding day in most regions of the area. 

Please enjoy this video by the Mark Jones, MTC TV. Bike to Work Day 2011 is presented by 511.org,  Metropolitan Transportation Commission, and Kaiser Permanente. The 2011 regional sponsors also include Bay Area Air Quality Management District, Beyond Pix Studios, Clif Bar, REI, Adobe, and the Bay Area Bicycle Coalition.


Note: Please note the video mentions a 25% increase in traffic. This is website traffic for www.youcanbikethere.com. Thank you.
