Clip on those helmets, wrap those knee pads, and lace up those tennis shoes because this is all about pedal power. San Antonians are gearing up to celebrate Bike to Work Day on Friday, May 17 across the Alamo City. We’re here to explain the day and how our city is getting involved.

What’s Bike to Work Day?

As the name suggests, the occasion highlights + celebrates alternative (and green) modes of transportation by biking to work. It’s part of a larger initiative — National Bike Month — which takes place during May.

Where do I ride?

You can ride your bike to work along a safe path or bring your trusty two-wheeler to the downtown area to hit all 12 Energizer Stations. Each installation offers educational materials, breakfast items, and the chance to win prizes along your commute.


Take a look at the Energizer Stations throughout downtown San Antonio and decide which one’s to visit.

San Antonio’s Bike Network Plan

Since 2000, over 400 additional miles of bike facilities have been built in the Alamo City — adding ~16 new miles each year. 7.9% of households in the city lack access to a vehicle, leaving alternative modes of transportation as the only option.

The city’s Bike Network Plan aims to create a network of safe + comfortable bike facilities like trails, bike lanes, and crossings. Get involved today by sharing your thoughts on San Antonio’s biking future via a survey.
