Thousands of bikers rolled across the Bay Area Thursday as part of the 30th annual Bike to Work Day.

The event encourages both regular bike commuters and those who typically do not cycle to consider it as a transportation mode. Bike to Work Day also advocates for enhanced bicycle infrastructure and safety throughout the region. All nine Bay Area counties offeedr Energizer Stations for cyclists, held special events, and invited elected officials to show their support.
