Bay Area Bike Share offers free bike rides on Bike to Work Day

Commuters can check out bike for free in Palo Alto, Mountain View and other cities

Bay Area commuters without a bike can participate in this year's Bike to Work Day for free through an offer by Bay Area Bike Share.

Commuters can sign up starting Friday, April 29 to check out a bike for free on May 12 at any of the 70 Bay Area stations, according to Bay Area Bike Share officials.

The stations are located in San Francisco, Redwood City, Palo Alto, Mountain View and San Jose and can be found at bayareabikeshare.com/stations.

Commuters, other residents and visitors can sign up at try.bayareabikeshare.com/btwd/.

Registration provides potential riders with a code that is sent by email and provides access to unlimited rides of 30 minutes or less for 24 hours, according to Bay Area Bike Share officials.

Riders enter the code at any bike share station on May 12. The pass is worth $9. They must use a debit or credit card when entering the pass code and a temporary deposit of $101 will be placed on the card.

Riders will be charged for rides of more than 30 minutes, Bay Area Bike Share officials said. Persons who want to take more than one free trip during the 24-hour period can do so by choosing "Request a New Ride Code" at any station.
