Thousands of bike riders throughout the San Diego region will GO by BIKE on the morning of Bike to Work Day, Friday, May 29, as they attempt to log 25,000 miles – the equivalent of one trip around the world and one million calories burned. Bike riders will be greeted by volunteers at a record 104 pit stops, where they will receive a free T-shirt, refreshments, snacks, and encouragement.

All pit stops will be staffed between 6 and 9 a.m. Some open as early as 5:30 a.m., and others will re-open in the afternoon to serve riders returning home from work. Some stops will offer extra incentives such as free bike repairs, bike tune-ups, and breakfast. View a Google map of pit stop locations and hours of operation at http://bit.ly/1bQtZ82.
