In light of the disruptions caused by the wildfires, the SANDAG iCommute program has decided to postpone the Friday, May 16 Bike to Work Day event countywide to Friday, May 30.

At this time, our primary concern is the health and safety of riders, the public, and emergency response personnel. The fires have affected air quality countywide, making physical exertion inadvisable in areas where there is still smoke in the air. The lives of thousands of residents have been disrupted.

With much of the public safety resources in the region focused on the fires, SANDAG wants to do its part to keep people off the road to avoid putting further strain on emergency responders.

Our thoughts are with the families who have been impacted by the fires and the emergency responders who are working hard to save homes and lives.
