Save the date — Bike to Work Day is Friday, May 18, 2012!
Bike to Work Day is a nationally recognized event celebrated annually on the third Friday in May. And because May is National Bike Month, San Diegans will have opportunities to participate in cycling activities all month long! Bike to Work 2012 supports bicycling as a viable, environmentally friendly, cost-saving commute choice.

Registered companies can also receive FREE bicycle safety and education classes provided by the San Diego County Bicycle Coalition.
