Bike to Work Day – 25% bigger than ever! – 511 Contra Costa

Bike to Work Day – 25% bigger than ever!

Did you notice a few more people riding into work on two wheels last week?
Last Thursday, over 4,360 people in Contra Costa County enjoyed the beautiful weather from their bicycles. That’s 25% more than in 2010, which was the record-setting year itself.
Dozens of energizer stations and hundreds of volunteers passed out goodies and snacks. People got out and got moving for their own health, the environment, and peace of mind.
What this your first year biking to work? How did it go? Will you keep it up, even once a week? Get the 511 resources you need to keep going.
Check out these pictures from people along the route, or the rest on the 511CC Flickr stream. Look out for the pictures from the Commuting Fair and Bike Tune-Up on May 4 at Brown and Caldwell.
