Here’s the Events, Giveaways and Goodies for Thursday’s Bike to Anywhere Day

Date:

This Thursday, Bike to Anywhere Day, the heir to Bike to Work Day, comes to Santa Monica. The annual international celebration of bicycling culture got a rebrand during the pandemic, but it still has many of the trappings of a traditional Bike Day, regardless of the branding.

This year’s Bike to Anywhere Day features a full day of activities and giveaways including the always popular “pit stops” during the morning commute hours, free transit rides on Metro and the Big Blue Bus, and a post-work Handlebar Happy Hour. Here’s a full list of Santa Monica’s Bike to Anywhere Day activities via Santa Monica Spoke. If more events “pop-up” we’ll let you know:
