Bike to Work

Bike-to-Work Week is coming with a number of activities to celebrate a refreshing alternative form of transportation. Here is your opportunity to participate in a fun-filled week in a variety of ways!

Event Details
Bike-to-Work Week, sponsored by RIDES for Bay Area Commuters, will be held from May 15 through May 19. A number of events and contests are scheduled to take place. Commuters who pledge to bike to work or school once during the week can have their names entered into a drawing for great prizes! Follow the link at the end of this message to register for Bike-to-Work events on-line. Entries must be received by June 1, 2000. Prizes to be awarded to Bike-to-Work Week registrants include: a bicycle trip for two in France, Kryptonite bike locks and bike gear from REI.

Energizer Station
Bike-to-Work Day is May 16. The Hacienda Owners Association, City of Pleasanton, Dublin Cyclery and BART will be hosting a Bike-to-Work Day Energizer Station at the Dublin/Pleasanton BART station (immediately outside the turnstile). The first fifty bicycle commuters to stop at the station will receive a special Bike-to-Work Day gift bag filled with complimentary gifts to honor your participation in this event. The station will also feature information on bicycle maintenance, safety and commuting as well as a free bicycle tune-up courtesy of Dublin Cyclery.

Tell a Friend Contest
Bike-to-Work Week also features a special Tell A Friend contest. Every time you tell a friend about the Bike to Work Week promotion, your name is added into a special drawing. Your chance of winning increases each time you tell a different friend. It’s that easy! All participants must be San Francisco Bay Area residents over 18 years of age. Employees registered for Bike-to-Work Week can commute by bicycle on any day the week of May 15-19 to be eligible to win prizes. Again, entries must be received by June 1, 2000.
