Start a Bicycle Commuting Program

Have bike, will commute.
Mai Le —

So your company has decided to implement and promote bicycle commuting as part of its transportation policy. How do you get started?

First go to youcanbikethere.com or sfbike.org to download or request an employer toolkit.

Consider asking an employee that is already bicycle commuting to be your company’s Bicycle Coordinator. This point person can be tasked with answering questions about your company’s bicycle commuting policy and benefits, as well as updating an intra-company bicycle commuting-related list.

Next assess your company's capacity to provide secure bike parking. This can be as easy as adding bike racks to your parking garage, bike lockers, a dedicated bike room, or access to a nearby location where
bikes can be kept securely. An outdoor bike rack will also let visitors and passersby know that your company supports bicycle commuting.

Provide a shower room or establish a relationship with a nearby health club for bicycle commuters. If shower facilities are absent, a well-stocked restroom will be sufficient. Most bicycle commutes are
less than five miles in each direction and take place in the morning hours, when the air is cooler, so a face wash and change of clothes are often all that is needed.

Make closets, lockers, and/or hooks available for employees. These things make it easier to store and change clothes once employees arrive at work. Professional attire may also require shoes unsuitable
for a bike commute, so the ability to leave and hang up work appropriate attire will broadcast support of bicycle commuting.

Provide a bicycle commuting welcome kit for every new employee that makes a commitment to bicycle commuting at least twice a week. Include in the welcome kit:
• Local bike map
• Patch kit to repair tires or bike lights
• Information about the $20 monthly bicycle commuter benefit and how they can enroll
• Automatic sign-up to intra-company bicycle listerv managed by Bicycle Coordinator
• Information about resources for classes on urban skills, bike safety, or
bike maintenance

Other benefits to consider in your support of bicycle commuting:
• Provide a monthly onsite class for urban skills, bike safety, or bike maintenance
• Emergency taxi/ transportation reimbursement for bike and public transit commuters that live 5+ miles away
• Monthly bicycle commuters breakfast
• Bicycling mentorship programs (pairing new commuters with fellow bike commuting employees) to get more employees on bikes
• Bicycle loaner program• Bicycle purchase subsidy or incentive program
• Consider supporting Bike to Work Day to show the community-at-large your company's support of bicycle commuting

Bikes, bay views, history rule on Angel Island

Bikes, bay views, history rule on Angel Island
Andrew Casteel —

Now is a good time to get on a bike. A few strokes of the pedals and turns of the wheels, and the memories come back. Suddenly, you're 10 years old again. The best place to experience this phenomenon in the Bay Area is Angel Island, where you get a mix of adventure, spectacular views, history and a 5.5-mile ride with plenty of stopping points.
