This Thursday, May 9th, is Bike to Work Day! As if you needed any more reason to hop on your bike and cruise through the beautiful Bay Area, the forecast for Thursday is mostly sunny and 72 degrees. Yes, please!
I think Bike to Work Day is an important initiative for many reasons, not least of which is because it helps save the environment (or just makes people think more about the environment). With so many millions of cars on the roads every day in the middle of a climate crisis, it is nice to have a good excuse to help curb those emissions.
More than 100,000 people are expected to take part in the 25th annual celebration, and there will be about 400 “energizer stations” scattered throughout the Bay Area. The City of Walnut Creek will host an energizer station for the public in an effort to promote cycling as a fun, healthy, and environmentally-friendly commute option. The location will be in front of the library on the corner of Lincoln Ave. and N. Broadway, from 7-9:30 a.m.
