Bike to Work Day 2016 Photo Recap

May 17, 2016

Bike to Work Day 2016 has come and gone. We hope many of you had the opportunity to give bicycling a try on Thursday, May 12, and will continue to use pedal power for your travels throughout “May is Bike Month” and beyond. Capitol Corridor enjoyed a full day of festivities at the Capitol Bike Fest in Sacramento and on board the train later that day for a special Bike to Work Day Happy Hour (or as we like to call it “Cappy Hour”!) Check out some of our favorite pictures from the day.

This is apparently what happens when you combine Bike to Work Day with “Bring Your Horse to Work Day.”

Cyclists Vajda and Bill rode their bikes all the way from Oakland to Sacramento just to board westbound Train 543 for Cappy Hour. Now that’s dedication!
