The 2024 Bay Area Bike to Wherever Days is kicking off its promotions for its 30th Anniversary of Bike Month at the Community FansFest at Oakland’s Bloc 15 in Jack London Square on Saturday, Feb. 24 beginning at 11 a.m.

The Community FansFest is a celebration of East Bay sports, activities and the communities of the East Bay.

Stop by the Bay Area Bike to Wherever Days Hydration Station where attendees can rehydrate, spin a wheel for a prize when they pledge to ride during May’s Bike Month or take advantage of BayWheels Bikeshare promotion for free bikeshare. 

Before the pandemic, Bay Area Bike to Work Day was a celebration of bicycles as a fun and healthy way to get to work, as well as an opportunity for those who don’t usually bike commute to try it out. 

As fewer people were biking to work during the pandemic, the event expanded into Bike to Wherever Days for the whole month of May, encouraging riders to choose their bicycle for more of their transportation needs.

Now, Bay Area Bike to Wherever Days together with Bike to Work Day reflect the new hybrid model of work and life going forward. During the month of May, no matter where you need to go, people are encouraged to bike to run errands, visit friends and family, ride recreationally, and to commute to work or school.
