Bay Area Bike to Work Day and Bike to Wherever Days

Bay Area Bike to Work Day (BTWD) began 30 years ago in 1994 as a celebration of bicycles as a fun and healthy way to get to work, as well as an opportunity for those who don’t usually bike commute to try it out. It’s also a time to advocate for improved bicycle infrastructure and safety across the region.

After 2020, as fewer people were biking to work during the pandemic, the event expanded into Bike to Wherever Days for the whole month of May, encouraging riders to choose their bicycle for more of their transportation needs. Now Bay Area Bike to Wherever Days together with Bike to Work Day reflect the new hybrid model of work and life going forward. During the month of May, no matter where you need to go, we encourage you to bike to run errands, visit friends and family, ride recreationally, and to commute to work or school. Commit to your ride by signing the Pledge, and show off your pride by taking the Bay Area Bike Challenge!

Be sure to come out for Bay Area Bike to Work Day on Thursday, May 16th to celebrate bicycling and to get your 2024 commemorative bag! Everyone on two wheels is welcome.

All nine Bay Area counties will have energizer stations ready to hand out commemorative bags, treats, and much more. For the first time ever, you can see all of the Bay Area energizer stations on one map! Exact energizer stations may change before the event, so keep checking back for the most up to date information.
