Bay Area Bike to Work day is on Thursday, May 16 but we’re celebrating all month long. Biking isn’t limited to one day of the year.

Whether you bike to work, school, parks, shops, libraries, or wherever, biking is good for you and the environment. You will get in some exercise, reduce your carbon footprint, and earn 500 points for those participating in the HealthySteps to Wellness program.

Learn more about actives and event happening in the Bay Area, visit the Bay Area Bike to Work Day website.

Can’t bike to work?

You can still celebrate by taking public transportation or ride sharing during the month of May. 

Earn HealthySteps to Wellness points

Once you’ve participated in Bike to Work month as a cyclist or taking an alternative form of transportation, you can sign in to your HealthySteps to Wellness account and complete your attestation form by May 30 to earn points for your participation.

Learn about Bike safety

To ensure you and your fellow riders are doing what you can to stay safe, refer to our Learn About Bike Safety page.

With traffic increasing in the Bay Area and restrictions easing for employees returning to campus, we want our community—both drivers and riders—to be attentive to the increased activity. Paying attention and avoiding distractions can help keep riders safe on the roadways and on campus.

To support a safe journey, we have compiled a list of bike safety resources and bike safety tips.


Safety First! Here are key “Dos” and “Don’ts”:

  • Do: Wear a helmet for every ride.

  • Don’t: Don’t be distracted while riding.

  • Do: Always keep both hands on the handlebars to be ready for a quick and smooth stop, applying the right (rear) brake first to avoid flipping over the handlebars.

  • Don’t: Don’t talk or text on your cell phone when riding a bike or driving. Refer to the California Highway Patrol’s message for National Bike Month on shared roadway responsibility when riding.


Bike Safety Tips

Follow these safety tips every day you ride to help you arrive safely at your destination. It’s a good, healthy habit to be equipped, be predictable and be alert. We want a safer campus for bicyclists and motorists alike—we are all in this together and share the roads we ride.
