Bike to Work Day on Thursday, May 18 from 6 to 9 am

Join thousands of people throughout the San Diego region as we GO by BIKE during Bike to Work Day on Thursday, May 18 from 6 to 9 am.

The City of San Marcos and local business Bike Vault will be teaming up to offer Bike to Work Day participants a unique San Marcos pit stop at the Civic Center Complex, 3 Civic Center Drive.  During their visit, riders will receive, refreshments, tune-ups and other city swag. Those who pre-register will receive a free t-shirt.

“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.”

To register and GO by BIKE, visit www.icommutesd.com/bike/bike-to-work. Resources include the San Diego Regional Bike Map, riding and safety tips, bike lockers, and information about taking your bike on transit. For more information on Bike to Work Day 2017, visit the Bike Month web page, call 511 and say “iCommute,” or email iCommute@sandag.org

City of San Marcos, CA: City partners with North County Food Bank for holiday food drive

The City of San Marcos is partnering with the North County Food Bank to host a holiday food drive on Wednesday, Nov. 17 from 6 to 9 am. A drive-thru drop-off location will be set up that day near the Sprinter station across the street from the San Marcos Civic Center, 1 Civic Center Drive. Canned donations will be accepted and used to provide food to 76 North County charitable agencies.

“Last year was particularly harsh for those whose homes, incomes and food supplies had been jeopardized or impaired,” explained Penny Felker, a San Marcos community volunteer who is coordinating the food drive effort. “We hope this year’s campaign will be tremendously successful as the need is still very real for many people in our community.”

Monetary donations are also welcomed, but must be coordinated directly with the North County Food Bank. Donors are encouraged to contact Food Bank Operations Director Mike Lawson at (760) 761-1140 or mlawson@sdnccs.org.
