Bike Month 2021
Bike the Richmond Bridge for Fun and Prizes!
During the month of May, we’re promoting the use of the separated bicycle and pedestrian path on the Richmond-San Rafael Bridge. Keep a lookout for our banners on both sides of the bridge, and scan the QR codes on them for prizes. One QR code scan will enter you in our raffle for a tandem bicycle (from The Pedaler Bicycle Shop), dinner for two at Anaviv in Richmond, and more prizes. Scan the QR codes on both sides of the bridge for a $5 Amazon gift card.
If you scan both codes 5 times during commute hours, we’ll send you an additional $20! Have fun and bike the bridge!
