Today's 18th Annual Bike to Work Day is expected to draw hundreds of thousands of participants throughout the Bay Area who can stop at energizer stations along major commuting routes to pick up freebies and bicycle resources.
San Carlos city officials notified residents that they could stop by the San Carlos Train Depot this morning to receive bicycle goodies and some coffee and breakfast treats before heading to work. In Redwood City, the Peninsula Congestion Relief Alliance is holding a raffle for those who pledge to bike to work an average of eight times before June 1.
And in Millbrae, at the Intermodal Terminal that connects BART and Caltrain, Environmental Programs Manager Shelly Reider said 75 bikers had been past the energizer station by 8:15 a.m., just a little hour after it opened. Bagels, power bars, fruit and coffee were offered for free to those who stopped.
