BIKE TO W(HEREVER) DAY AT THE LAKE

Please join us on Friday May 20 for Bike To W(herever) Day festivities.  Come down to the Lake Merritt Pergola to connect with WOBO, the Oakland Cycling community and the agencies and organizations we work with to make The Town a friendlier place to get around without depending on private autos.  We’ll have free swag, bites and beverages so bring your friends and family.

BTWD 2022 attractions include:

  • 1Oakland Community Ride to the Lake
  • Pedal-power music and disco party at the Lake through 7PM
  • Our first community “Flag” ceremony
  • Info booths with WOBO, Bike East Bay and more

It’s going to be great!  We look forward to seeing you there.

1OAKLAND COMMUNITY RIDE

Ride in unity to celebrate this year’s Bike To Wherever Day, starting from the 81st Ave Library through Liberation Park, Fruitvale BART, Latham Square, West Oakland, and ending at the Lake Merritt Pergola for fun bicycling activities, more snacks and major swag giveaways!

We roll out at 3:30pm from the 81st Ave Library. Meet up earlier at 3pm to grab snacks and check out bike repairs.
