UPDATE – Elizabeth Vahlsing answered our call to co-coordinate 2019 Bike to Work Day!
It’s the beginning of February, but advocates are already gearing up for Bike Month in May, and Bike to Work Day (BtWD) May 9, 2019. Every year for many many years now (almost since BtWD began), Albany has had a successful and well-attended Bike to Work Day Energizer Station on the Ohlone Greenway in the morning. I (Nick Pilch) had the privilege of running this station for a number of years and it always gave me a thrill to see the community getting together and celebrating the use of pedal power as a way to get to work, or school, or wherever you’re going.

There was plenty of food, thanks to our generous donors, and volunteers distributed it and plenty of information!

Albany Strollers & Rollers is in need of an organizer for this year. As an organizer, you would be in charge of being a liaison with Bike East Bay, who coordinates efforts in the area. You would also organize efforts of the day of. Finally, solicitations of donations, and local publicity are also part of this effort, but you would have a lot of help. A number of us (Nick, Ken, Amy, Sylvia) can answer any questions and help out with these things, as well as drum up a bunch of other volunteers for you. We just need a main organizer. Your help would go a long way towards  advancing Active Transportation.

A kick-off meeting with Bike East Bay is coming up this week, and it would be really helpful if you could attend that if you are interested. Attendance at that is not mandatory, but it would be a great way to learn more.

Please reach out to if you have any questions or interest at all, and we thank you so much for considering!

Stuffing bags for everyone who rolls by is FUN!! If you can help, please email Ken at – thanks!
