View Bike to Work Day 2014 Pit Stop Map in a larger map

More than 8,000 bike riders countywide are expected to take to the streets Friday for this year’s Bike to Work Day, which was rescheduled from May 15 due to the recent wildfires.

The event was rescheduled to May 30 because public safety personnel were focused on the recent wildfires and there was still smoke in the air in many parts of the country.

Riders will be greeted by volunteers at a record 97 pit stops throughout the region, where they will receive free refreshments, t-shirts, and plenty of encouragement.

All pit stops will be staffed between 6 and 9 a.m. Some open as early as 5:30 a.m., and others will re-open in the afternoon to serve riders returning home from work.

Some of the stops will offer extra incentives, including bike gear makeovers, bike tune-ups, free massages, and merchandise coupons.

In advance of Bike to Work Day, SANDAG recently updated the interactive regional bike map, which highlights more than 1,340 miles of bikeways in San Diego county. SANDAG is the regional planning agency for the San Diego area.
