Bike to Shop Day is Tomorrow!

Great deals are happening  at local businesses around San Francisco tomorrow on our city’s first annual Bike to Shop Day. The SF Bicycle Coalition, in celebration of National Bike Month and San Francisco Small Business Week, is supporting local businesses around the city as part of our first Bike To Shop Day this Saturday, May 23.

To help you sort through all the great participating business (including our Discount Partners!), we put together a couple sample rides (see below) that give you a taste of what our great local businesses have to offer for people who bike. From cartoons to coffee to classic novels, Bike to Shop Day has you covered, no matter your interests.

Also, who wants prizes?! Take photos using #BikeToShop as you bike around to participating businesses — the best photos even get a prize!
