Gear Up for Bike to Work Day

Get your bike in gear for the 25th annual Bay Area Bike to Work Day on Thursday, May 9. 

The City is hosting four Energizer volunteer stations positioned at key commute locations from 6:30-9 a.m. Bicycle commuters can ride by and pick up a Bike to Work Day 2019 tote bag, “I Bike Palo Alto” t-shirts, snacks and other give away items while supplies last. Each station has its own unique flare.  

  • Alma Bike Bridge near Alma St. at Palo Alto Ave. (Free bike tune-ups)
  • City Hall on Bryant Street at Hamilton (info about transportation projects)
  • California Avenue Caltrain Station at Cal Ave. & Park Blvd. (largest Energizer Station in Palo Alto)
  • Wilkie Way Bike Bridge near Monroe Dr. at Miller Ave. (Pancakes)
