Bike to Work Day

  • West San Carlos Street San Jose, CA United States (map)

Join Supervisor Ken Yeager and thousands of other Silicon Valley commuters for National Bike to Work Day on Thursday, May 12. This annual community event encourages local residents to try bicycling as their mode of transportation to help relieve traffic congestion and curb motor vehicle emissions. In the Bay Area, more than one million people commuting to work live fewer than five miles away from their jobs, making biking an easy alternative. 

There will be energizer stations throughout the County—including one I’m sponsoring at 70 W. Hedding St. in San Jose (at the main entrance to the County Government Center near the corner of First and Hedding) —open from 6 to 9:30 a.m. to provide refreshments and goodies to those travelling on two wheels instead of four. You can visit the Silicon Valley Bicycle Coalition website to plan your route and find energizer stations along the way.
