Bike to Work Day

Andrew Casteel —

Thursday, May 13th is the 16th annual Bike to Work Day, a day of promoting the health, environmental and economic benefits of bicycle commuting. On the morning of May 13, San Jose State University and the City of San Jose will have an Energizer Station at the corner of 4th Street and San Fernando Street, in front of the Martin Luther King Jr. Library. This station, along with more than 200 other Energizer stations located throughout the Bay Area, will provide snacks, encouragement and a free reusable tote bag to bicyclists. The Silicon Valley Bicycle Coalition, which coordinates the Bike To Work Day activities in the South Bay, also has scheduled numerous events on that day: http://bikesiliconvalley.org/btwd

The County of Sonoma is hosting an Energizer Station Thursday May 13th from 6:00-9:00 AM. We are excited to do what we can to promote a healthy lifestyle. Bike to work week is not just about bike riders. It is also about all forms of alternative transportation.

We'll have members of the Sonoma County Board of Supervisors flipping pancakes and gifts for all who find other ways to get to work than driving alone in a car.

Once a year, people join together and leave their cars at home because on May 13th its bike to work day. People all over the Silicon Valley work together on May 13th to save money, exercise and reduce their carbon emissions by riding their bikes instead of driving. This event so fun and I encourage everyone to participate.

Bike to Work Day — Thursday, May 13 at Stanford!

Get ready to bike and/or walk to work on Thursday, May 13, as we celebrate the greenest ways to commute to Stanford.
Why Bike To Work?

* Almost 40 percent of Bay Area commuters live within five miles of their workplace, a distance considered ideal for bicycle commuting.
* If every person living this close to their workplace pedaled to work on Bike to Work Day, more than 60,000 vehicles would be off the road, reducing tailpipe emissions by more than 150,000 pounds.
* Bicycling or walking could save both emissions and expenses. Try our Commute Cost and Carbon Emissions Calculator for your savings.
