Tune up those brakes and grab your helmet, the 22nd annual Bike to Work Day is Thursday, May 12. Cyclists in Palo Alto will head to work -- and school -- Thursday morning, 6:30-9:30 a.m., as part of the event, which aims to encourage two-wheeled commuters.
Bicyclists can stop by "energizer" stations located around the city to grab free snacks, water and other items such as a canvas bag filled with goodies. These stations will be set up at the Alma Street Bike Bridge, Wilkie Way Bike Bridge, on Bryant Street near City Hall and on California Avenue near the Caltrain station.
The Silicon Valley Bicycle Association will also have energizer stations set up at KEEN Garage (278 University Ave.), the bike station at Palo Alto Caltrain Station (95 University Ave.) and White Plaza at Stanford University, among other locations.
