Thousands Participated in SANDAG Bike Anywhere Day
Thousands participated in SANDAG Bike Anywhere Day, formerly Bike to Work Day, on Thursday morning. Nearly 3,700 people took the free pledge to GO by BIKE and visited more than 100 pit stops around the region.
“Thanks to everyone that participated in Bike Anywhere Day. Today was a great example of how our community can come together to promote a cleaner environment,” said SANDAG and San Diego Supervisor Chairwoman Nora Vargas. “It shows our commitment as a county in promoting active ways of transportation and moves us closer to cleaner air and healthier and stronger communities in San Diego County.”
From Oceanside to El Cajon to Tijuana, bicyclists were cheered on and greeted by volunteers as they pedaled through the 100 pit stops across the San Diego region. At the pit stops, riders received a free commemorative SANDAG Bike Anywhere Day 2023 t-shirt, snacks, refreshments, and a SANDAG regional bike map to explore the more than 1,700 miles of featured bikeways.
SANDAG's Bike Anywhere Day sweepstakes are closed and winners will be announced on Friday, May 26 via an Instagram post on SANDAG's account (@sandagregion).
SANDAG has organized this event for more than 30 years to promote a fun, environmentally friendly, and cost-saving alternative to driving.
