Bike to Work Day

First day back on the bike in two weeks. Didn't hurt! And I won something at the pit stop.

Here's info about Bike to Work Day. Think about it for next year.

Bike-to-Work Day is an annual event held on the third Friday of May across the United States and Canada that promotes the bicycle as an option for commuting to work. Leading up to Bike-to-Work Day, national, regional, and local bicycle advocacy groups encourage people to try bicycle commuting as a healthy and safe alternative to driving by providing route information and tips for new bicycle commuters. On Bike-to-Work Day, these groups often organize bicycle-related events, and in some areas, pit stops along bicycle routes with snacks.

I would have biked to work today...if I had a job. I will, hopefully, remember this info for next year. You may have to remind me.

I'd die if I biked to work. Seriously.

My youngest daughter rides her bike to school almost every day. (I walk to work) Yesterday there were kids waiting at the bike racks with t-shirts and snacks for all of the bicyclists. It really made her day.

Susan, yeah, I believe it. Those mountain roads would be deadly.

Churlita, yeah, free stuff is always fun...

Nate, of course they do!

I was off today. In theory, I could bike to work...it is about 12 miles. They are not very biker friendly miles though...or I'm more terrified of being run down than the average person, I'm not sure.
