Bike Month 2019

Join us for the 29th Annual SANDAG Bike to Work Day on Thursday, May 16, 2019!  

Bike to Work Day is a nationally recognized event celebrated annually in May. Since May is also National Bike Month, San Diegans have opportunities to GO by BIKE all month long. Bike Month 2019 supports biking as an everyday, environmentally friendly, cost-saving commute choice.

Bike to Work Day 2019. Bike to Work Day will be celebrated in the San Diego region on a Thursday again this year. Register for Bike to Work Day and join thousands of commuters as we GO by BIKE on the morning of Thursday, May 16. Registration will open March 1.

Pit Stops. Pit stops are a great way for organizations to get involved on Bike to Work Day. They offer fun breaks for new and experienced bike riders to rest and pick up a FREE t-shirt, snacks, and encouragement at 100 locations throughout the region. Pit stops will be open from 6 to 9 a.m.

Organizations interested in hosting a 2019 pit stop will need to complete an online application. Due to the overwhelming interest in previous years, pit stops will be awarded based on set criteria and not on a first-come, first served basis. Pit stop applications will be accepted March 1 - 22.

Bike to Work classes and events. Employers - get your employees ready for Bike to Work Day by taking advantage of FREE bike services offered by SANDAG iCommute. Register for a free, on-site bike education class to get employees comfortable with riding. Participating employees can even receive free bike safety checks.
