Thanking bicyclists on Bike to Work Day!

May 15, 2014

This year, we signed up with Metro Los Angeles to serve as a Bike to Work Day pit stop host. As an environmental nonprofit working to achieve reductions in greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, we’re excited to support local bicycling efforts to further support emissions reductions in our community.

Even though the weather was forecasted for a high of 101 degrees today – the hottest in this current heat wave – many dedicated bicyclists sweated their way through the sauna-like heat and commuted to work on their bicycles.

We were happy to share our thanks for their efforts to clean our air and help our climate. At our pit stop, bicyclists and bicycling enthusiasts were able to pick up maps of bike paths in LA county, safety guides outlining the rules of the road, brochures for local bicycling nonprofits, reflector lights, patch kits, and breakfast goodies.

Bicycling is a great way to reduce emissions, get exercise, reduce traffic congestion, save money, and enhance the community’s quality of life. We received a comment that “Bike to Work Day should happen every month, no every week!” We agree!

Special thanks to Metro Los Angeles, Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf, and the U.S. Bank Building for their support!!
