Bike to Work Day was Friday, May 20, 2016!
Bike to Work Day is a nationally recognized event celebrated annually on the third Friday in May. Since May is National Bike Month, San Diegans have opportunities to GO by BIKE all month long. Bike Month 2016 supports biking as a viable, environmentally friendly, cost-saving commute choice. With thousands of miles of bikeways in the San Diego region, biking gets you where you need to go. Make biking to work your new normal.
Bike to Work Day 2016. More than 9,700 visits at 100 pit stops were recorded on Bike to Work Day - Friday, May 20. Hundreds of volunteers staffed pit stops throughout the region for participants to rest, enjoy refreshments and snacks, and pick up a free commemorative Bike to Work Day t-shirt. Photos of the event can be found on the iCommute Facebook page.
Thanks to our partners. iCommute organized Bike to Work Day 2016 with the help of event supporters, including San Diego County Bicycle Coalition, Performance Bicycle, DecoBike, Clif, Suja Juice, and Zico Coconut Water.

"Commuting by bike is better for the environment, better for health, and helps me feel more energetic at work. My commute often allows me to enjoy some San Diego sunshine and fresh air, and it’s faster than driving."
