Bike to Work Day postponed due to weather, now Friday, May 29 - Pledge to GO by BIKE!

Important update. Due to inclement weather on Friday, May 15, the SANDAG iCommute program postponed Bike to Work Day to Friday, May 29. We appreciate your understanding. Everyone who pledged is still encouraged to participate, and you now have extra time to encourage your family, friends, and coworkers to join you! 

Take the Bike to Work Day pledge. Join thousands of bike riders throughout the San Diego region on the morning of Bike to Work Day as we attempt to log 25,000 miles – the equivalent of one trip around the world and one million calories burned! Log your Bike to Work Day trip in TripTracker to make sure you’re counted and to be entered to win prizes, including a new bike! Remember, the only way to help us reach our goal of 25,000 miles on Bike to Work Day – and the only way to win prizes – is to log your trips. Pledge to GO by BIKE!

Bike to Work 2014 recap.
Across the region, Bike to Work Day ridership and the number of pit stops reached an all-time high in 2014. On Bike to Work Day, more than 8,700 people biked to work, stopping at one of 96 pit stops set up across the county. In May 2014, more than 272,000 bike commute miles were logged in TripTracker, generating significant environmental and health benefits. That equates to nearly 11,800 gallons of gas saved, 8.3 million calories burned, and is equivalent to nearly 11 trips around the earth.

GO by BIKE all month long. The fun isn't just on Bike to Work Day! Don’t forget to continue to log your bike trips with TripTracker throughout Bike Month to be eligible for additional prizes. With more than 1,340 miles of bikeways in the San Diego region, you can get almost anywhere by riding a bike. Check out plans for new bikeways at GObyBIKEsd.com
