If you’re going to ride your bike to work one day this year (you should be doing it every day, of course) then make it Bike To Work Day (Friday, May 15, 2015) because the City of Carlsbad and the San Diego Association of Governments will hook you up with some free goodies, maybe even a T-shirt at their “pit stop” at triangle park aka Frazee Beach at Carlsbad Boulevard and Pine Avenue.

“The City of Carlsbad encourages those who live and work in and around the city to join neighbors, friends and coworkers in celebrating Bike to Work Day with us,” said Rachael Shay, special events supervisor for the city. “The many miles of bike-friendly transportation systems in our community and now a great campaign like Walk + Bike Carlsbad make it easy to take in Carlsbad from a different perspective.”

We’ll see you on the road. For the official word from the City of Carlsbad, please follow the jump. [click to continue…]
