We had a great time out there today during last Friday treat stations - we will be doing it all over again on the last Fridays of July and August. Thanks so much to everyone who came out + thanks to all the amazing organizations who provided tasty treats!
Treat stations are the lifeblood of events like Bike to Work Day. Everyone knows there is nothing better than building community with free food! This year, we are expanding our footprint to make sure even more cyclists get to experience the magic of Bike to Work Day.
We will have treat stations set up at Eastchester/Woodside Park and Lion's Community Park in Mountain View from 6-9am on Friday, May 17th. Want to help us fuel commutes and get folks on their bikes? Send an email to email@example.com!

When I described my upcoming trip to my father, he simply remarked, “Calgary, huh, cattle country!” He isn’t wrong, Calgary is home to its namesake Stampede, one of the largest rodeo festivals in the world. But, despite their bucolic roots, Calgary is also an ambitious modern northern city with big plans to advance its transportation infrastructure, and they were keen on sharing those advancements with the rest of the world.Read more
