Bike to Work, School, or Wherever on Thursday, May 16

Published May 5, 2024

Join thousands across the Bay Area in biking to work, to school, to run errands, or anywhere else you’re going on Thursday, May 16, the 30th annual Bay Area Bike to Wherever Day.

This yearly celebration of pedal-powered transportation aims to help fledgling riders find new routes and experience what it’s like to use a bike for daily mobility while also building community among active cyclists. With roughly half of Piedmont’s in-territory greenhouse gas emissions coming from transportation, getting more residents to adopt cleaner commute options is a critical piece of meeting the City’s Climate Action goals.

Energizer Stations in Piedmont and across the East Bay offer snacks, encouragement, and giveaways

Whether biking to the office, accompanying the kids to school, or just taking a coffee break while working from home, roll over to the Piedmont Sustainability Division’s energizer station at Highland and Vista to say hello.
