Mayor Lee Celebrates Bike to Work Day

Mayor Lee Celebrates Bike to Work Day Joining business leaders and scores of commuters, Mayor Edwin M. Lee today celebrated the 17th annual Bike to Work Day, a regional event celebrating and encouraging bicycling for transportation. San Francisco organizes one of the biggest and most well-known Bike to Work Day events in the country. This year’s Bike to Work Day had 12 different commuter convoys from around the City organized by the 12,000-member San Francisco Bicycle Coalition (SFBC) with Mayor Lee, Supervisors, City Departments, and key business leaders participating. 

“This Bike to Work Day, we celebrate both the residents who bike to work and the City’s businesses who have embraced bicycling as a viable mode of transportation for their employees and customers,” said Mayor Lee. “We’ve seen a 58 percent increase in bicycling in the City over the past four years, and local companies are realizing that providing a welcoming environment for people who bike is yet another way to attract top talent.” Read more.
