Bike to Work Day 2018 is revving up!
As you know, May is National Bike Month and Thursday, May 10, is the Bay Area’s 24th Annual Bike to Work Day. Riders will roll out en masse to celebrate a car-free commute, experiencing the joys and benefits of bicycling to work, school, and for local errands.
We’ve already told you to check that chain, pump up those tires, let your office mates know that your bike will be next to your desk that day… so you should be ready to ride!
