Bike to Work Day 2016 Recap!

Today’s post is a brief celebration of a successful Bike to Work Day at San Antonio park! We had 47 bikers come through and gave away all 30 bags we stuffed with the volunteers from Bike East Bay. I think next year our newly established Energizer Station will require a few more bags to last through the whole morning. I’d say it was a success! Felix (nurse for homeless outreach at Highland Hospital) and I sure had a fun couple of hours together flagging down bikers to give them the goodies.


Bikers we met ranged from high school kids to East Oakland teachers, from downtown office workers to a librarian biking all the way to the library on 81st street. We met many bikers who didn’t know it was officially “Bike to Work Day” and others who had a few errands to run before work but still chose to ride to honor the special day. My favorite biker had a bedazzled helmet, which he decorated himself with Swarovski crystals! Impressive!
