On Thursday, September 24, Fremont will celebrate “Bike to Wherever Day." On this day, community members are encouraged to join with others across the Bay Area to get out and ride. Anyone planning to ride on Bike to Wherever Day can complete an online pledge to ride which will unlock access to digital goodies and maps of self-guided rides. Bike to Wherever Day replaces Bike to Work Day, which is traditionally celebrated in May, but has been restructured for 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The City of Fremont is adding to the fun on Bike to Wherever Day by organizing a friendly competition for the best photos of Fremont residents riding in their community. Fremont residents can submit a photo of themselves or their family out riding to a local business or recognizable Fremont landmark. The photos will be judged by Fremont’s Mobility Commissioners and the top five entries will receive gift certificates to a local business. Photos can be submitted by email any time before September 30, and winners will be announced in early October. By your submission, you are waiving the rights to the photo and consent to the City of Fremont’s use of the photo. Please ride with discretion if the air is unhealthy. Happy Riding!
