The San Diego Association of Governments has revamped its Bike to Work Day to Bike Anywhere Day, which will be held on Thursday, May 18, from 6-9 a.m. On Bike Anywhere Day, those participating can explore nearly 1,800 miles of bikeways throughout the region, from Oceanside to El Cajon to Tijuana, and the 2023 SANDAG Bike Anywhere Day Pit Stop Map includes more than 100 locations for participants to plan their trip ahead.
“Pit stops will provide fun and engaging breaks where bike riders can pick up a free commemorative t-shirt and grab refreshments and snacks. Participants will also receive encouragement from pit stop hosts including health care organizations, local businesses, municipalities, government agencies, colleges and schools, bike shops, and event sponsors. In 2022, nearly 7,000 people visited the pit stops around the region,” stated SANDAG Associate Public Information Officer Stacy Garcia in a press release.
For more than 30 years, SANDAG has hosted this regional event to celebrate Bike Month in May and promote biking as a viable, fun, and healthy alternative transportation choice for everyday trips. This year, riders who share their pledge on Instagram could win one of four $250 gift cards from Moment Bicycles.
San Diego County Board of Supervisors Chair Nora Vargas said SANDAG Bike Anywhere Day is a “perfect opportunity to promote sustainable transportation and stronger communities.
“I encourage everyone to ride a bike to explore our beautiful county – it’s a fun and healthy way to get where you need to go while helping improve air quality for all,” she said.
