Santee Peddles Bike to Work Day

Tuesday, May 14, 2013

Cyclists participating in Bike to Work Day can get pampered with refreshments, encouragement and free T-shirts by dropping by either of two “energizer” stations in the city of Santee, which will be staffed from 6 a.m. to 9 a.m. on Friday, May 17.

Santee’s Community Services Department will operate a bike-to-work pit stop at the intersection of Mast and Carlton Hills boulevards. A second station on Prospect Avenue east of Olive Lane will be staffed by Partnerships with Industry, a nonprofit that helps adults with developmental disabilities find jobs.
The two pit stops in Santee will be among 90 set up throughout San Diego County on Bike to Work Day, a national event observed annually on the third Friday in May.

Bike-to-Work Day participants can register here to win prizes offered through Sandag’s iCommute program.
The Santee City Council on April 24 approved a proclamation endorsing the bike-to-work event as “a healthy transportation alternative,” and noting that May is National Bike to Work Month.

“Santee commuters can reduce their weekly solo commute trips and the demands placed on the region’s roadways by 20 percent by choosing a commute alternative like biking to work just once a week,” the proclamation states.
