Bike Month 2017

Bike to Work Day was Thursday, May 18, 2017!  

Bike to Work Day is a nationally recognized event celebrated annually in May. Since May is also National Bike Month, San Diegans have opportunities to GO by BIKE all month long. Bike Month 2017 supports biking as an everyday, 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 2017. More than 10,500 visits at 100 pit stops were recorded on Bike to Work Day, Thursday, May 18. 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 2017 t-shirt. Photos of the event can be found on the iCommute Facebook page.
