Bike to Work Day 2009

The San Francisco Bay Area’s 15th annual Bike to Work Day took place on Thursday, May 14. An estimated 150,000 commuters and students hopped on their bikes - instead of into their cars. The event featured about 200 "energizer stations" sprinkled around the Bay Area to recruit, reward and refuel participants. Organizers expected the warm weather, and the growing popularity of bicycling in the Bay Area, to draw record crowds of riders.
