On Thursday, May 8, 2014, thousands of enthusiasts throughout Sonoma County will hop on their bikes and ride them to work including a large contingency of environmental stewards from The Fairmont Sonoma Mission Inn & Spa. That’s because they’ll have received the powerful message that May 8, is the 20th Annual Bike to Work Day. Colleagues and partners of the Inn invite you to join other area commuters for a celebration of bicycling as a clean, fun, and healthy way to get to work.
Bike to Work Day has become an extraordinarily popular event in Sonoma County. Each year, the event’s brand recognition and participation skyrockets. The Bicycle Coalition expects similar growth this year.
During morning commute hours, Sonoma County businesses, government agencies and dozens of volunteers — coordinated by Sonoma County Bicycle Coalition — will set up some 30 “Energizer Stations” throughout the County, including a station at the employee entrance of The Fairmont Sonoma Mission Inn. These stations treat Bike to Work Day participants to coffee, juice, breakfast foods, and will hand out some 1,600 reusable Bike to Work Day canvas musette bags filled with goodies.
Rick Corcoran, General Manager of the iconic Inn, will bike-commute to the resort and then take a shift at the SMI Energizer Station. “Bike to Work Day Bike has a solid reputation as a positive, fun, environmentally-conscious, health-promoting, and community-building event and The Fairmont Sonoma Mission Inn & Spa is a proud participant.” shares Corcoran. “Sonoma County is a national model for innovative bicycle-friendly transportation facilities and programs. Energizing our commitment to 'think globally and act locally', we are proud to support hotel-based environmental initiatives that encourage partnerships and learning while addressing universal environmental issues.”
