As most of you know, we’re all big fans of cycling at Timbuk2. We ride to work, have a free bike-share program at our retail locations, make bags for folks who ride…well we could go on, you get the idea. May is National Bike to Work Month and the perfect time to celebrate cycling and all its glory. San Francisco celebrates Bike to Work Day today, a bit earlier than most cities around the US.
Timbuk2 came away with a great award from the San Francisco Bike Coalition . We were presented a Bicycle-Friendly Business Award for huge employee ridership and great incentives for employees to bike to work. To claim the prize, our CEO, Mike Wallenfells rode over 30 miles from his home in Novato to Civic Center in San Francisco. The mayor was there to speak on the efforts for improving cycling in the city. He also awarded the Bicycle-Friendly Businesses their awards.
Happy Bike to Work Day!
