Bike to Work Day is a nationwide effort that’s organized regionally by SANDAG. It promotes bicycling as a healthy, economical and environmentally friendly commute choice. While supplies last, participants will receive snacks, beverages and other giveaways at the pit stops.
The City of Carlsbad booth features the city’s Public Works staff, and the Economic Development Division’s Life in Action® campaign, highlighting the city’s location and businesses as an ideal choice for those who balance career aspirations to change the world with personal goals to pursue an active lifestyle.
“The City of Carlsbad encourages those who live and work in and around the city to join neighbors, friends and coworkers in celebrating Bike to Work Day with us,” said Craig Williams, City of Carlsbad senior engineer. “Bike to Work is a perfect fit for the healthy lifestyle enjoyed by so many in Carlsbad.”
In preparation for Bike to Work Day, on Tuesday, May 14, cyclists and active lifestyle enthusiasts are invited to enjoy a “Get Ready to Ride” celebration from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at The Island at Carlsbad food court, located at 5814 Van Allen Way.
Ongoing improvements to city streets to install new bike lanes, widen existing bike lanes and add bike lane buffers continue to make Carlsbad more bike-friendly. These improvements increase transportation options and opportunities for healthy recreation as well as benefitting business and tourism in our community.
