Bike to Work or Wherever Day draws cyclists of all kinds

City of Piedmont

Dozens of local cyclists cycled over to the Piedmont Sustainability Division’s Energizer Station last Thursday as they joined the thousands across the Bay Area in biking to work, to school, to run errands, or anywhere else they were headed. Hosted by Piedmont’s Sustainability program staff, with support from Planning & Building, Recreation, and Police Department staff as well, bikers were provided with sustenance by Mulberry’s Market and giveaways of Bike to Wherever Day tote bags and reuseable straw kits. Cyclists visiting the station at Highland and Vista were entered into a raffle to win a bike cleaning essentials kit from the Sustainability Division.

It was a lively few hours with visits by many different types of cyclists – people commuting to work, to school, riding with children, riding for exercise.

Piedmont Police Officer Tyler Petit was on hand all morning as he helped participants sign up for Piedmont Police’s free Safe Bike Program, which keeps bicycle ownership records in the event that one is ever lost or stolen.
