Bike to W(herever) Day Planning

At the April 15, 2021 BPAC meeting, Chris Hwang, Walk Oakland Bike Oakland (WOBO) Board President, presented on Bike to W(herever) Day and ways to get involved. WOBO will produce a Bike To Wherever Day program at Lake Merritt on the afternoon of Friday, May 21, a national day for celebrating the bicycling commute. The 14-year old nonprofit is proud to produce a self-guided ride around the beautiful lake from 3pm to 6pm. They invite partners who are able to and interested in sharing resources that help Oaklanders experience the city by bicycle to email WOBO if they’d like to participate in programming the area along the walkway between the pergola and El Embarcadero Way, or to sponsor the event. Please stay tuned for additional details, and follow @walkoakbikeoak on social media for announcements and how to get involved.
