Thursday, May 12 2011 is Bike To Work Day in the San Francisco Bay Area and many other California cities.
Bike To Work Day is always “26 Mile Tour of Silicon Valley Energizer Stations Day” for me as my colleague Dan and I meet up in San Jose and bike up from the South Bay while sampling the breakfast stations in San Jose, Santa Clara, Sunnyvale, Mountain View, Palo Alto and Menlo Park. These Energizer Stations provide food, drink and schwag to everybody passing through. You can even get quick bike tuneups at the larger stations such as the REI sponsored location at Mountain View Caltrain.
This year I need to stay close to home for a school activity, so I think I’ll sample Santa Cruz County offerings, which means I’ll miss out on my annual BTWD musette bag collection. I’ll take photos along favored Santa Cruz cycling routes so watch for me with my camera. I’ll also hand out Zero Per Gallon stickers.
- SF Bay Area BTWD information, including Energizer Station locations, Team Challenge, maps, tips, photos and video for the nine county San Francisco Bay Area.
- Monterey Bay Area Bike To Work info for Santa Cruz, Monterey and San Benito Counties. Monterey Bay Area organizers also call this day Bike To School Day.
For most of the rest of the United States, Bike To Work Day falls on Thursday or Friday next week. In Colorado, Bike To Work Day falls on Wednesday, June 11, 2011.
