Bike to Work day is today

More than 5,000 bicyclists are expected to hit San Diego County’s streets Friday for the annual Bike to Work Day.

Friday’s event was organized by San Diego Association of Governments, a regional planning agency also known as SANDAG.

There will be 65 “pit stops” around the county manned by volunteers passing out free drinks, T-shirts and food.
