Bike To Work Day Promotes Green Commuting • Long Beach Post

Bike pools were provided yesterday as part of Bike To Work Day, celebrated throughout Los Angeles County to promote healthy lifestyles and encourage alternatives to commute driving.  Free Starbucks coffee was offered to riders outside City Hall, and Long Beach Metro and Transit gave free rides to passengers with bicycles or bike helmets.

The Long Beach Cyclists hosted a pit stop at the Belmont Veterans Memorial Pier, and similar stops were held at Portfolio’s Coffee House and the Starbucks on Willow Street.
