This friendly competition is among businesses in the City of Santa Clarita to see which employer can get the most employees to bike to work on Thursday, May 18, 2017. This event will take place during Bike Week Santa Clarita, which will include several bike related events.
On Bike to Work Day, five bicycle pit stops will be available for the cyclists. Santa Clarita Transit and Metrolink are offering FREE rides for anyone on local routes that have their bike and/or helmet. That way you can complete your commute, even from a distance! Also, riders will have the opportunity to receive prizes!

Bicycling reduces traffic, keeps our air clean, improves your health, and saves you money on gas!
