Bike to Work Day, May 8, 2014

Rider at Mill Valley Energizer StationThe 20th Annual Bike to Work was a first for many of you and another invigorating celebration for those who cycle every day to work, for recreation, and for errands.  We counted over 3,400 cyclists at the energizer stations throughout Marin. The totes and donated breakfast snacks were coveted by many!

17 Energizer Stations were hosted by our fantastic sponsors, hosts and volunteers who helped us reach out to so many cyclists!  Thank you for your continued support!
