BIKE TO WORK DAY SUCCESSFUL

 

May 26, 2011 (El Cajon)--Bike To Work Day on Friday, May 20th was a big success in El Cajon.  A total of 103 riders stopped by the Bike To Work Day Pit Stop at East Main Street and Sulzfeld.  City employees and residents were asked to find an alternative way to get to work, such as riding their bike, carpooling or taking public transit.

 

This event also reminded motorists and bicyclists about bicycle safety - and about sharing our roadways.  Those who stopped by the Bike To Work Pit Stop were treated to snacks, water and a Bike To Work Day T-Shirt. 

 

Through the sale of t-shirts, El Cajon employees raised $850 to purchase bikes for deserving grade school children in the City of El Cajon.  Last year six bikes were purchased for area students.
