Bay Area residents are encouraged to pedal to wherever SAN FRANCISCO, May 18, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- For the first time in two years, thousands of people across the Bay Area will be biking to their jobs as Bike to Work Day returns Friday, May 20. After being postponed for two years because of the pandemic, many people have returned to work and there's no better way to get there than by bike. And for those who are still working remotely – maybe permanently – pedaling to do errands, taking kids to school, and more is still a great way to get around while making as small an impact on the planet as possible.
