What is an Energizer Station, you ask?
You know those tents full of cheering volunteers, water, and snacks along marathon routes? Give them canvas bags full of freebies and coffee, put them along your bike commute, and you’ve got a Bike to Work Day Energizer Station. Dozens of these tents will be set up along major bike corridors throughout Contra Costa County on Thursday, May 12. Some are sponsored by companies, cities, or just regular volunteers that like cheering on active life styles and handing out coffee.
Are you ready to plan your route for Bike to Work Day, on Thursday, May 12? Make sure you stop by at least one of these on your way.
