Cyclists participating in Bike to Work Day can get pampered with refreshments, words of encouragement and free T-shirts by dropping by a pit stop sponsored by the city of Santee this Friday, May 30.
The city’s Community Services Department will staff the Bike-to-Work booth at the intersection of Mast and Carlton Hills boulevards from 6 a.m. to 9 a.m. Last year, we distributed snacks, soft drinks and shirts to 19 bicyclists participating in the event.
Santee’s pit stop 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.
Last year, more than 8,400 people countywide signed up for Bike to Work Day and logged more than 216,000 bicycle commute miles during the month of May.
