BTWD Tote Bags!
This year, Bike to Wherever Day tote bags will be available for a curbside pick-up at selected bike shops and libraries located throughout Alameda and Contra Costa Counties. Ride your favorite local routes and stop by at one of the locations on the map to grab a bag! Each station has different business hours, so make sure to check your location and its hours.
