One day each year, on a warm May morning, the Silicon Valley Bicycle Coalition encourages commuters to leave their cars at home and join tens of thousands of their fellow Bay Area residents in biking to work. This year, Bike to Work Day falls on May 10.
The weather should be perfect, and the streets filled with cyclists, rolling up to energizer stations staffed by volunteers eager to pass out treats and encouragement. Bike to Work Day is a vision of what the morning commute should look like: parents and children, office workers, politicians, CEOs, all doing the unimaginable – enjoying their trips to work and school.
For all Spartans on wheels, SJSU and the city of San Jose will sponsor an energizer station beginning at 6:30 a.m. outside King Library at South Fourth and East San Fernando streets. An energizer station is a small booth set up along the roadways of major bicycle commuting routes that has food, goodies and good cheer to encourage cyclists. Every year, bicyclists who stop by these stations receive a free re-usable Bike to Work Day bag full of tips on safety and useful bicycling information.
