When this is posted on Thursday morning, hopefully I'll be on my way biking and doing my tour of South Bay Energizer Stations. I plan to stop off a the Energizer Stations at San Jose Depot, Mountain View Castro Street, Palo Alto Wilkie Way, Palo Alto California Avenue, Palo Alto City Hall, and Menlo Park Willow Road taking photos all along the way. Be sure to say "Cheese" for my camera!

Here's what the San Francisco Bay Area news media says about Bike to Work Day:

    IMPORTANT: Please post comments for this article at the new CYCLELICIOUS 2.0 version of this page.
...it's both a good & interesting situation that "bike to work day" draws as much mainstream media coverage as it does...there's a basic ramping up of energy for the whole week culminating in this "special day"...
...but the unfortunate part is that it's only seen as a newsworthy "once a year event" rather than being recognized as the mainstay transportation method of so many people...
...one of the main points, we as cyclist's agree on, is that education is a huge factor in making our roads safe for all forms of cycling...i firmly believe the media is a huge untapped source that could be utilized for that means on a daily basis...but it seems we're really only newsworthy once a year other than when there are deaths or major confrontations (ie: critical mess)...
...it's rather a shame that the media's "responsibility" doesn't extend further than simply being "event recorders"...they could go a long way towards creating safer communities...

...anyway, just a thought & i tip my cycling cap to people like fritz & so many of you who regularly cycle-commute...i do what i can, when i can but there are plenty of extremely dedicated folks who deserve good praise & recognition...
