“From the SPRINTER to miles of trail and bike lanes, Bike to Work Day is a great reminder that you don’t always need your car to get from point A to point B in San Marcos and the San Diego region,” said Public Works Director Matt Little.

Arranged by the San Diego Association of Governments in efforts to encourage alternative modes of transportation, the annual event will include more than 100 pit stops throughout San Diego County and expects to draw more than 9,000 riders.

“Not only does biking to work save you some gas money, but it also supports an active, healthy lifestyle,” said Community Services Director Buck Martin. “With a pit stop in San Marcos and others all over the county, we are encouraging residents to join fellow pedal pushers and GO by BIKE.”
