Participants in the 25th annual Bike to Work Day traversed the nine counties of the San Francisco Bay Area on Thursday.

Misty, windy and cool conditions did not stop tens of thousands of riders from pedaling to work and school, stopping to get treats and commemorative 25th anniversary canvas tote bags at one of 400 energizer stations staffed by volunteers from bike coalitions, local companies and governments across the region.

Nearly 100,000 strong, the bicyclists turned a typical May Thursday morning commute into a huge boost to the environment and their own good health.

Presented by the Metropolitan Transportation Commission (MTC), and Alaska Airlines, Bike to Work Day encourages Bay Area residents to leave their cars at home or skip the bus, train or ferry for the day and commute on two wheels.
