Commuters Encouraged to Celebrate Bike to Work Day May 17


"On Your Bike, Get Set, Now Bike to Work!" That's the message the City of Pasadena's Prideshare Program wants the public and employers to embrace for Bike to Work Day on Thursday, May 17.

The Pasadena Department of Transportation's Prideshare Program, in conjunction with the Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority (Metro), is encouraging the public to leave their cars at home and ride bicycles to work on May 17.

"We encourage people to take this opportunity to bike to work, start cycling for fun and fitness and consider regularly using the human power of the pedal instead of the accelerator," Pasadena Transportation Department Director Fred Dock said.

The Prideshare Program will celebrate Bike to Work Day from 6:30 a.m. to 8:30 a.m. Thursday, May 17 at City Hall, 100 N. Garfield Avenue with a special "Pit Stop" for bicyclists.

The Bike to Work Day Pit Stop at City Hall will be one of the seven pit stops available in the area to help refuel bike commuters. Local merchants and bicycle shops also will be participating in the event. The event is open to the public and includes refreshments and free giveaways and prizes.

Other Pit Stop locations include the:

  • Allen Metro Gold Line;
  • Western Asset Plaza;
  • One West Bank;
  • MPG Office Trust Inc.;
  • Caltech and
  • Worthe Real Estate Group.
