2017 Bike to Work Day

May 11th is Bike to Work Day in the San Francisco Bay Area.  It also happens to be Global Bike to Work Day, although I don’t know who decided that.  All I know is Strava started promoted this, and it stuck in everyone’s mind.

The problem for me is I start on the road by 6:30, and most Energizer Stations don’t have their tent set up by the time I get there.  I can always count on the station on San To.as Aquino MUT at Agnew.  They usually have a nice spread.  Bagels, M&Ms, coffee, … Mmm, nice way to start BTWD.

It was a pretty good turnout.  Nice to see happy smiling cyclist faces on the trail.  I did see one trike, so that’s the only odd bike I saw out there.  Yes, there were Bromptons, Dahons, and a few recumbents, but strange that I didn’t see any Bike Fridays.

Next station was at Lawrence Expressway and Baylands Park.  More bananas, and Hobee coffee cake … Mmm.  Starting to get full now … LOL

I ride further on and a couple of stations just barely had their table set up, and another had it all laid out but no one there.  Odd … I had enough anyways, so just straight into the office.

I know that National Bike To Work Day is next week, and some cities don’t have it till next month.  

We also had a Bike to Work lunch, but that was the day previous to Bike to Work Day.  This is all very confusing.


Hope everyone had a good Bike to Work Day.  Let’s keep on riding, and not just do it on Bike to Work Day.  Let’s do that everyday!

    I was bummed. In years past I was able to ride to the downtown seattle office on bike to work day. There are no less than 7 great stops along the way, and 10 more if I want to be late and explore. This year, I was stuck in the Lynnwood office, not one stand on the way to work. Not even at the local bike shop.

    Next year I schedule ahead.
