Biking can be a fun and functional form of exercise for individuals and families. This month as the temperatures begin to rise, give biking to work or running errands on your bicycle a try!

Join the fun on the biggest bike day of the year! Pledge to ride and you’ll receive a map of Energizer Stations. There you can get your free Bike to Work Day bag filled with snacks, coupons, including $10 off at Mike’s Bikes, and other useful information for your ride around town. Station hosts will also provide tasty snacks and high fives to cheer on your morning ride. 

This year, Berkeley's Campus Bike Committee will operate two Energizer Stations at Sproul Plaza (Bancroft and Telegraph) and at the Richmond Field near the Bay Trail from 7-9:30am.
