EBBC: Bike to Work Day Volunteer Thank You Party: Team Bike Challenge Awards

From EBBC:

We owe a tremendous shout out to the best part of the East Bay Bicycle Coalition–our great volunteers. Thanks to their incredible work, over 200 volunteers, Bike to Work Day has expanded to all regions of the East Bay, and in a big way. And through the great work of our volunteers, we are changing people’s lives (and the entire region) for the better. We cannot thank everyone enough for making this wonderful event happen. We are treating all volunteers to a post-BTWD thank you party June 14 at the Hot Italian Restaurant in Emeryville. At the thank you party, we also plan to recognize the winners of the Team Bike Challenge competitions.

Enjoy complementary pizza from the Hot Italian, beer as well, raffle prizes, bike valet and more fun.
