From a City of Piedmont press release on May 9:
Join thousands across the Bay Area in biking to work, to school, to run errands, or wherever else you’re going on Thursday, May 18, the 29th annual Bay Area Bike to Work Day.
This yearly celebration of pedal-powered transportation aims to help fledging bike riders find new routes and experience what it’s like to use bicycles as a means of core transportation while also building community among active cyclists. With roughly half of Piedmont’s in-territory greenhouse gas emissions coming from transportation, more residents making the switch to cleaner commute methods is a critical piece of meeting the City’s Climate Action goals.
Get encouragement and goodies at Energizer Stations in Piedmont and across the East Bay
Whether biking into an office or just taking a coffee break while working from home, Bike to Work Day participants can get swag, refreshments, and encouragement at any of 57 Energizer Stations across Alameda County, including a Piedmont station near City Hall, hosted by the City’s Sustainability Division:
Piedmont Bike to Work Day Energizer Station
Thursday, May 18, 7 – 9 a.m.
Highland Avenue @ Vista Avenue
Stop by on your bike to say hello and you’ll get a free Bike to Work tote bag (while supplies last) and refreshments courtesy of Mulberry’s Market. An interactive map of all 57 stations in Alameda County is available on the Bike East Bay website at bikeeastbay.org/energizer.
