Bike to Work Day

Bike to Work Day is held annually during California Bike Commute Week. The goal is to encourage citizens to consider non-motorized methods of commuting to work. Those who commute by bicycle are treated to a variety of information tables and a continental breakfast. City of Modesto Rideshare hosts this event, with participation from many local business and organizations.

Family Cycling Festival

This annual event occurs each May in downtown Modesto and in conjunction with a professional bike race, the Modesto Downtown Criterium. Bicycle safety and education are emphasized. The festival provides free entertainment, with BMX Stunt Shows, and children's activities. This event is also hosted by the City of Modesto and participating sponsors include numerous local businesses and organizations. Hundreds of helmets are fitted by health professionals from local hospitals and given at no charge to local children.
