Record 85 pit stops planned for Bike to Work Day

At least 6,000 riders in San Diego County are expected to hit the streets Friday, May 18, for Bike to Work Day, the centerpiece in a whole month of events promoting bicycling.

The cyclists will be greeted by volunteers at a record 85 pit stops throughout the region, where they will receive free refreshments, Bike to Work Day t-shirts, and lots of encouragement. View our online pit stop map at: http://bit.ly/IssSJn.

Most of the stops will be open from 6 to 9 a.m., but some will open as early as 5:30 a.m. and some will even be open in the late afternoon for cyclists returning home. At some of the pit stops, riders will be treated to a hot breakfast, massages, free bike tune ups, and special gifts from bike vendors.

• There will be a special pit stop in San Ysidro in the afternoon for cyclists who will travel as a group across the border from Mexico.

•  At Snooze Eatery in Hillcrest, volunteers will be celebrating the installation of the city’s first on-street bike corral.

• Other popular stops include the San Diego Zoo, Caltrans in Old Town, Anywhere Bike Repair, and Bike MS.

SANDAG has organized Bike to Work 2012 with the support of numerous annual partners, including Suki Day Spa, SuperShuttle San Diego Zoo, car2go, eLiveLife.com, Clif Bar, Tri-City Wellness Center and the San Diego County Bicycle Coalition.
