Bike to Wherever Day is the Bay Area's biggest day for bicycling, and this year Bike East Bay is bringing you safe, socially distanced fun. Pledge to ride to get all the details, find your nearest energizer station, and get ready for the big day! Get routes to ride, find your nearest energizer station, and all the details by visiting BikeEastBay.org/BTWD.

At the Fremont Main Library on Saturday, May 22 the City & Mobility Commission will be hosting a "pop up" Energizer station in the Fremont Main Library parking lot. In addition, the City will have new HOPR e-scooters available for people to test!

Bike to The Moon
May 10-14, 2021
The Alameda County Safe Routes to Schools (SR2S) program invites you to join as we Bike to the Moon! During this week-long event, students, families, school staff, and community members will track their miles and minutes of physical activity with the goal of collectively “biking” all the way to the moon, which is 286,900 miles away! “Moon miles” can be earned by participating in activities including biking, walking, rolling, taking transit, and learning about bike safety.
Check if your school is enrolled in the SR2S program. If not (or you’re not in school), you can still sign up to Bike to the Moon.
