Once again Bike East Bay will be hosting hundreds of Energizer Stations throughout the East Bay, distributing goodie bags and celebrating the joy of biking. Last year over 15,000 cyclists participated throughout Bike to Work Day. We had a record number of children bike to school and mayors leading by example and biking to city hall. We hope you’ll be biking to work, school, or even around your neighborhood on the day of. While you wait, here are some things you can do to get ready and to get involved:
