Tomorrow: Bike Away From Work Day

Tomorrow, Friday May 21 is nationally-recognized Bike To Work Day. This is a day for you.

I agree that everyday should be bike to work day, but BTW Day is rad because it offers extra incentives for people to ride. For example, there will be over 50 pit stops w/ free energy bars, drinks and water throughout San Diego county.

SANDAG, who funds SD BTW Day, has put together an updated list of all the pit stops in the county, available here.

Recommended pit stops include the following:

-Adams Ave. Bike Shop who will be offering free minor repairs from (2606 Adams Ave. in Normal Heights)

-Thomas Bike Shop who will be offering a full-on breakfast (1635 1/2 Fern St. in South Park)

-Clean Transportation Committee for the San Diego Regional Sustainability Partnership (aka Sustain San Diego) shared w/ Move San Diego (5th Ave. & University Ave. in Hillcrest). The Clean Transportation Committee is a new group working to improve conditions for zero-emission forms of transportation in SD.

-Velo Cult Bike Shop (Juniper St. and Fern St. in the heart of South Park).

All pit stops will be open from 6am to 9am.

There are two shops in SD organizing "bike away from work pit/party stops;" Adams Ave. (from 3pm to 7pm) and Velo Cult (from 4pm to 7pm). Velo Cult will have free beer so make moves!

This is your day. Claim it...and everyday thereafter.
