Hitting the Pavement in San Francisco on Bike to Work Day
Posted May 10, 2012 by Alejandro De La Cruz
Causes.com is very fortunate to be located in one of the greatest cities in the world: San Francisco! Today, our friends at the San Francisco Bicycle Coalition sponsored a “Bike to Work Day,” inspiring thousands of commuters in the city to hit the pavement on their hybrids, cruisers, road bikes, and fixies.
Dozens of volunteers managed bicycle stations to provide valuable insights to newer bicyclists, while also handing out fun maps and tote bags, and equipping cyclists with service stations to guarantee a safe and fun ride. A few Causes employees, comprised of veteran bicyclists and some newbies (me!), took to the streets to support the event. The team met at the great Panhandle and rode to the Financial District, hanging out with bicyclists, making stops, and taking pictures along the way.
If you took to the streets today and want to share a story, head over to our action story page and let us know what your commute was like! Below are some photos from our ride.
