CARLSBAD — Cyclists participating in Bike to Work Day, now scheduled for May 30, can enjoy a “pit stop” as they pass through the city of Carlsbad from 6 to 9 a.m. at the seawall at Frazee Beach at Carlsbad Boulevard and Pine Avenue.
While supplies last, cyclists will receive snacks, beverages and other giveaways. Bike to Work Day, organized regionally by SANDAG, promotes bicycling as a healthy, economical and environmentally friendly commute choice.

“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 make it easy to take in Carlsbad from a different perspective.”
Ongoing improvements to city streets to install new bike lanes or widen existing bike lanes continue to make Carlsbad more bike-friendly. These improvements increase transportation options and opportunities for healthy recreation as well as benefiting business and tourism in our community.
