San Diego Gears Up For Bike To Work Day

GUEST:

Cody Hooven, chief sustainability officer, City of San Diego

Transcript

Thousands of San Diegans are preparing to use pedal power to get to the office Thursday for Bike to Work Day.

County and local governments, bike shops and other businesses will set up more than 100 pit stops throughout San Diego from 6 to 9 a.m. Thursday morning with snacks and tuneups.

Biking to work is increasingly important to the city of San Diego. Its Climate Action Plans expects six percent of commute trips in "transit priority areas" to be made by bicycle by 2020.

Cody Hooven, the city’s chief sustainability officer, joins KPBS Midday Edition on Tuesday with tips on staying safe while biking and how the city is working to improve its bike infrastructure.
