BC will host our second annual evening celebration of Bike to Work Day on Thursday, May 12, 5-8pm on the Todos Santos block of Salvio St.
We’ll be showing a variety of bikes equipped to transport kids and groceries, and bikes with battery assist (e-bikes) from Leonardo Cycles for those who want the option of bicycling with less effort sometimes. Some of the bikes will be available for test rides in the open area of Salvio St.
There will be live music from local artists It’s Better with Wine and The Midnight Brothers, and remarks by the Mayor of Concord, Laura Hoffmeister.
Tickets will be sold for several raffle prizes, including gift baskets from Loard’s and Hop Grenade. All proceeds will benefit Bike Concord.
E.J. Phair and Loard’s have generously agreed to donate 10% of drink and ice cream proceeds during the event when you mention Bike Concord. This will help fund our all-volunteer work for the coming year.
Arrive by bike and you can leave it with us for safekeeping at our free Bike Valet.
We are giving out a special Bike to Work Day edition Bike Concord pin for those who attend the event. Along with our Christmas Eve Ride and Tamale Fest pins, this is the third special-edition Bike Concord pin.
We’ll also be offering free bike repair with our usual Thursday evening Bike Tent, located for just this evening on Salvio St instead of its usual place at the corner of Grant St and Willow Pass Rd.
Please drop by, chat with us about how to make bicycling a practical transportation option for you, and enjoy the music!
