Pledge to Ride on Bike to Work Day
Join the fun on the biggest bike day of the year
On Bike to Work Day on Thursday, May 11, Bike East Bay will bring you over 130 Energizer Stations located throughout Alameda and Contra Costa counties. Energizer Stations are open during your morning commute with refreshments, free Bike to Work Day canvas bags, and high fives for everyone riding by.
If you live or work in Downtown Oakland, start your day at the Frank Ogawa Plaza Energizer Station. Everybody is welcome to a free pancake breakfast and you can securely park your bike until 6pm with our free bike valet service.
Pledge to Ride
Pledge to ride on Bike to Work Day and tell your city that bikes count. Sign the pledge and you’ll be entered in a drawing to win one of our sweet Beautiful Machine t-shirts. You’ll also get a map of Energizer Stations before the event, so you’ll know where to get your free Bike to Work Day bag and renew your membership.

Find Your Local Bike Happy Hour Party
Finish your Bike to Work Day with a bang by celebrating with friends at a Bike Happy Hour! Gather at a party near you to toast a great Bike to Work Day.
Bike East Bay’s happy hour will take place at Sports Basement Berkeley. During the party, the store will offer a 20% discount on merchandise. Come on down for live music, tasty food truck fare, and refreshments from Drake’s Brewing. We’ll have a free beer waiting for everyone who signs up or renews their membership at the party.
In addition to our party in Berkeley, there will be at least ten Bike Happy Hours happening in cities across the East Bay. If you live or work in Downtown Oakland, make sure to stop by Walk Oakland Bike Oakland’s block party in Latham Square. Rich City Rides will also host an outdoor celebration right around the corner from Richmond BART. Fremont and Pleasanton will both see new gatherings this year, and Amtrak Capitol Corridor returns with two rolling happy hours on north- and southbound trains.
