On May 12, 2016, the City of Menlo Park participated in the Bay Area’s 22nd annual Bike to Work Day by hosting five energizer stations at the Willow Place bike bridge, San Mateo bike bridge, Caltrain station (both northbound and southbound) and the Pierce Road/Ringwood Avenue bike bridge. In addition to the City’s stations, volunteers and four companies including Facebook, Stanford (4100 Bohannon Dr.), Pacific Bioscience and Tarlton Properties hosted energizer stations throughout Menlo Park. Menlo Park has participated in Bike to Work Day every year, and this year hosted more energizer stations than any other city in San Mateo County.
Over 900 riders stopped by the city’s stations; some stopped for refreshments and giveaways, and all who rode by received a morning cheer from our City of Menlo Park volunteers! Thank you to those who participated. By choosing to bike, walk, use public transit or other transportation modes other than driving alone, we can make a difference to reduce our carbon footprint and help relieve congestion on the roadways.
