Hacienda is celebrating Bike-to-Work Week from May 17 to May 21.  As part of the week long festivities, Bike-to-Work Day is Thursday, May 20th. Take the healthy commute and join thousands of Bay Area commuters as they bike to work or to transit.

Energizer Stations
On May 20, Energizer Stations will be set up all over the Bay Area to celebrate Bike-to-Work Day.  Hacienda will participate in an Energizer Station at the Dublin/Pleasanton BART station co-sponsored by Hacienda, the City of Pleasanton, Dublin Cyclery and BART.  The Energizer Station will be open between 7 a.m. and 9 a.m. in the plaza area just outside the turnstiles. The Dublin/Pleasanton BART station sits in the middle of Interstate 580 and is easily accessed by Owens Drive from Pleasanton and by Dublin Boulevard from Dublin. Hacienda cyclists who stop by will receive a free canvas tote bag, t-shirts, snacks and a free bike safety check courtesy of Dublin Cyclery.
