Bike to Work Day

Bike to Work Day is a national event celebrated annually in the United States in May as part of National Bike Month. Bike to Work Day was originated by the League of American Bicyclists in 1956 to increase public interest in biking and promote it as an alternative for commuting to work.

The 30th Annual SANDAG Bike to Work Day is organized by the SANDAG iCommute program in conjunction with local jurisdictions, businesses, and other partners in the San Diego region.

The 30th Annual SANDAG Bike to Work Day will be postponed in accordance with guidance from the San Diego County Health and Human Services Agency, which recently issued an order prohibiting all large events with more than 250 attendees. SANDAG’s priority is to ensure a healthy and safe environment for our participants, staff, and volunteers.

SANDAG hopes to reschedule Bike to Work Day later this year.

SANDAG remains committed to building the “GO by BIKE” Regional Bike Network to make biking a convenient and safe option for everyday transportation needs. We hope you’ll consider opportunities to continue to GO by BIKE

As part of outreach to employers during Bike Month, SANDAG iCommute offers free bike safety checks, bike safety classes, and guided rides to show groups of employees safe routes to commute to work.

SANDAG also funds the GO by BIKE Mini-Grant program for projects that promote biking through outreach and education. $60,000 in grant funding was available in 2020.

Twenty-one organizations will lead programs or hosted events throughout the San Diego region from March through June 2020, and all are open to the public.
