San Diego County CA— Bike to Work Day across San Diego County was enthusiastically embraced by commuters this morning, with pit stops recording more than 10,500 visits from bike riders who stopped by to enjoy everything from donuts and Clif bars to Suja Juice and coffee.
The SANDAG iCommute program organized 100 pit stops from Oceanside to San Ysidro and from Downtown San Diego to Lakeside. The pit stops were staffed by volunteers who provided encouragement, refreshments, and snacks. Those who registered for Bike to Work Day through iCommuteSD.com also received a free commemorative Bike to Work Day 2017 t-shirt.

The annual event aims to demonstrate that commuting to work by bike is a fun, environmentally friendly, and cost-saving alternative to driving. Via its GO by BIKE program, SANDAG encourages everyone to ride their bikes regularly as a means of transportation – whether it’s to work, to school, or to run errands.
