Fabulous Bike to Work Day!

Posted by Len Gilbert on May 10, 2012

Yes, the weather is fantastic again for BTWD. And this year was even better because Piedmont had it’s own Energizer Station at Grand Lake Ace. An Energizer Station is a small booth or table set up along the roadways of bicycle commuting routes that has food, goodies and neighbors to encourage cyclists on Bike to Work Day.

Bicyclists who stop at a stations get a free re-usable Bike to Work Day bag with useful bicycling information. Piedmont Connect organized it and Peet’s Coffee & Tea, Arizmendi, and Piedmont Grocery supplied coffee, pastries, and fruit.

Piedmont’s station got a visit from Mayor John Chiang and councilmember Garrett Keating, who were on their way downtown.

Later, I rode to Emeryville and stopped at the Xtracycle Energizer Station on West St and another on 65th and the Emeryville Greenway.


Keep biking!
