Bike To Work Day

As I was driving home today from work on CA-41 I saw one of the big light boards had a message flashing. I could tell it wasn't an amber alert, so I was at least glad about that. As I got closer though, I saw it said "Bike to Work Day" and then "Share the Road". I thought, that's pretty awesome. They are advertising bike to work day on the freeways, maybe some people will be more inclined to bike to work today.

I then thought, "wait... it's bike to work day today? How come I didn't hear about this sooner?" Then I thought, "what are they doing advertising that today on the freeway, during the afternoon rush hour? Isn't it a bit late to convince people to ride their bikes to work when they are already on their way home?"

Turns out that Bike to Work Day does not happen until next week on Friday. Would it be too much to ask for a date or at least a website to find out when the day is exactly?
