Bike To Work Day Is Tomorrow – Fun OCTA Videos

Tomorrow, Thursday, is Bike to Work Day, part of Bike Week L.A.

L.A. Cyclists ride free tomorrow on all Metro buses and trains. Other municipal buses, LADOT Commuter Express, Big Blue Bus, Foothill Transit, etc., are also offering free rides to cyclists. Bring your bike for free rides on Metrolink trains all week. There are dozens of local Bike to Work Day pit stops from West Hollywood to Santa Monica to South L.A. to Glendora to Highland Park and a half gazillion places in between. Your SBLA editor is looking forward to biking to UCLA’s Complete Streets Conference at the California Endowment, which is hosting its own Bike to Work Day pit stop. After work, there is a bikey art show reception downtown, and plenty of handlebar happy hours.

If you’re looking for a little motivation, enjoy these Orange County Transportation Authority bike to work videos. They making biking to work appear just about as fun, healthy, easy, and sexy as it actually is.

Watch all five great OCTA bike to work vids; the rest are here, here, and here. (Thanks Price Tags.)
