Thursday September 24, 2020

While Bike to Work Day is normally held annually on the second Thursday in May. This year, the COVID-19 pandemic has necessitated its reschedule to late September. On this special day, and week of 9/20 – 9/26, WOBO and bicycling allies encourage people to try out some of Oakland’s new-ish bicycling infrastructure, visit Slow Streets, even ride the BRT’s bike-friendly buses.

How to Join the Fun

We will not be hosting the traditional celebratory fair at City Hall this year. But we have several ways for everyone to experience the joy of moving by bicycle.  Check out our plans for Bike To W(herever) Day: Play Bike Bingo and win prizes, share a ride you take during the week on social media (tag us @walkoakbikeoak), or volunteer for one of many tasks.
