Ready for Bike to Work Day? Find a pitstop near you with this handy dandy map

If you’ve never tried commuting to work by bicycle, Bike to Work Day is the perfect day to push that pedal. On Thursday, May 14, join thousands of other bike commuters around Los Angeles County and ride to work on two wheels.

To make your bike commute super easy and fun, there will be pit stops located around the county to provide you with tips, refreshments and more! Also, there’s this: those with a bike get free rides on Metro!

Afraid to ride alone? We have you covered! Visit LA Bike Trains to see rides guided by local community bicycle groups to business centers. Chances are good there’s one that fits your schedule.

To claim your free ride on Metro Rail at latched stations, use the Gate Help intercom located near the fare gates to notify an attendant who will open the ADA gates for you.

Additional details and tips on how to bring your bike on board below.

  • Board trains using doors marked with yellow decals.
  • Always walk your bike within Metro stations or on trains.
  • For everyone’s safety, do not bring bikes on escalators; use the stairs or elevators instead.
  • Elevator priority will be given to passengers with disabilities.
  • Do not use emergency exit gates at turnstiles except during emergencies or unless directed by law enforcement or Metro personnel.
  • Observe all Bikes on Metro guidelines.
  • If bringing your bike on a bus, try to sit or stand near the front of the bus to keep an eye on your bicycle. At your stop, notify the operator you will be removing your bike and exit from the front door.

Culver City Bus, Glendale Beeline, Long Beach Transit, Montebello Bus Lines, Norwalk Transit System, Torrance Transit, DASH and Commuter Express, Beach Cities Transit, City of El Monte Transportation, Big Blue Bus, Commerce Municipal Bus Lines and Pasadena ARTS will also offer free transit rides to bicyclists who board with a bicycle or bicycle helmet.
