Bike to Work Day 2016
Thursday, May 12, 2016, will be the 22nd year of Bike to Work Day.  Last year, almost 600 Tri-Valley cyclists participated in the annual event by visiting the two “Energizer Stations” set up at both Dublin/Pleasanton BART stations. This year, staff from the cities of Dublin and Pleasanton, the Alameda County Transportation Commission, as well as Hacienda, Dublin Cyclery, and REI Dublin will host the stations offering cyclists refreshments, t-shirts, and bags filled with giveaways and coupons from local sponsors.
