More than 1,700 adults and children in Napa County traveled to work, school and other destinations by bicycle on Thursday morning.

They participated in the Bay Area’s 23rd annual Bike to Work Day, designed to promote using bicycles as transportation.

A key feature of the event is offering “energizer stations” where cyclists can stop for snacks. Napa County had 13 energizer stations, which also provide counts for the event.

More than 500 adults participated in Bike to Work Day, according to a press release from the Napa County Bicycle Coalition.

In addition, 26 local schools participated by encouraging students and families to use their bikes. More than 1,200 bikers responded, the press release said.

The Napa County portion of the event was coordinated by the Napa County Office of Education’s Safe Routes to School program and the Napa County Bicycle Coalition.
