It's officially Bike Week L.A., so try not to mow down bicyclists as usual, Angeleno drivers.

What is Bike Week L.A., you ask? Mostly it's just a way to encourage you to step away from the gas guzzler and instead pedal to work. Among the enticements, which include cleaner air and toned legs, is this:

Free bus and Metro rail rides for cyclists on Thursday, which happens to be Bike to Work Day.

Not only that, but Culver CityBus, Glendale Beeline, LADOT, Long Beach Transit, Montebello Bus Lines, Norwalk Transit, Pasadena ARTS, Santa Clarita Transit, Torrance Transit and Metrolink are participating, according to Metro.

On this momentous day, there will also be more than 60 bicycle “pit stops” in the county where refreshments and giveaways can be had for the price of nothing.

Bike Week happens through Sunday. Info.
