Bike to Work Day: Adding Up the Miles

Bike to Work Day is a national event celebrated annually in the United States on the third Friday in May as part of National Bike Month.

The purpose of National Bike Month is to encourage biking as a viable, fun and healthy transportation choice for all types of trips.

Bike to Work Day was started in 1956 by the League of American Bicyclists to increase public interest in biking and to promote it as an alternative for driving to work.

Here in San Diego, we will celebrate Bike to Work day on Friday, May 20.

A total of 101 pit stops are planned for Friday. They will be open from 6:00 to 9:00 a.m. for bikers who register beforehand.

Pit stops offer welcome breaks for new and experienced bike riders as they head off to work or school on Friday morning.

Bikers can rest at the Pit stops and pick up a FREE T-shirt, snacks, water, and encouragement before they get back on their bikes.

To see the Bike to Work 2016 pit stop locations around San Diego county, check out the pit stop map.

San Diego county also has many scenic biking trails you can try out any day of the year.

Some Excel Math employees enjoy biking to work and riding bikes just for pleasure (and exercise). 

One of our former employees ran a bike shop back in the 'seventies.

Some of our Excel Math lessons include math problems about biking.
