City of El Cerrito hosted an energizer station on the Ohlone Greenway on the South side of Fairmount, across from the Plaza BART station.
Each year, the City participates in the regional "Bike to Work Day" by hosting an Energizer Station and other events. Energizer Stations are a big part of Bike to Work Day-Located along many commute routes during morning commute hours, bicyclists can stop by for refreshments, giveaways, and bicycling information or simply to be 'cheered on' by fellow participants.
This year, we counted 443 commuters on wheels!!
City staff from Community Development, Public Works, the Police Department, and Environmental Services teamed up at the Energizer Station to talk about a variety of current City projects as well as hear ideas about how to create a more walkable, bikeable, and sustainable City. In addition to promoting the regional theme to celebrate bicycling as a healthy, fun, and economical form of transportation, we were able to meet with community members and hear their ideas about cycling in El Cerrito.
This annual event is supported by many local businesses. In addition to the businesses who support the regional Bike to Work Day effort, El Cerrito’s 2018 Energizer Station is supported by the East Bay Bicycle Coalition, West Contra Costa Transportation Committee and Contra Costa 511.
Thank you to the 443 cyclists that came to our 2018 Bike to Work Day Energizer Station! Click here to see photos from 2018 Bike to Work Day.
