Today: Bike to Work Day


To the joy of bikers and chagrin of drivers, Thursday, May 12, marks the 17th annual Bike to Work Day in the Bay Area.

From 7 a.m. to 9 p.m. local bikers will find "energizer" stations at the Willow Place, Pierce Street, and San Mateo bike bridges and the Menlo Park Caltrain station. Bike bags, brochures, and other freebies will be handed out to all riders who stop by.

Sandy, I'm not sure what you mean by "chagrin of drivers" on Bike to Work Day. Despite being a bicycle commuter myself, I'm as critical of cyclists' behavior and attitude as anyone. Yet I've never noticed any unusual problems created by their increased numbers on Bike to Work Day.

I 100% agree w/ Max Crittenden. And besides thinking that the drivers might NOT be chagrined: they should be happier as there will be less cars on the road.

Safe trails!
