Bike to Work Day 2010

Are you biking to work on Thursday, May 13th?

You should give it at try. Why?

  • The weather looks great for tomorrow with a high of 73 degrees.
  • There will be lots of other riders out. The more riders, the safer the ride.
  • There are a bunch of “Energizer Stations” along most commute routes with things like coffee, juice, pastries, free stuff, and BTWD canvas bags with more goodies. All free.

For more info, see the Bike to Work Day site at http://www.youcanbikethere.com/

Even if you can’t ride on Thursday, consider riding when it makes sense for you. Every day you ride you help yourself by getting more exercise and reducing stress. Not to mention reducing traffic and pollution. If you can’t ride to work, try it for errands. Both the Grand Lake and Temescal farmers markets, Grand Lake Ace, Mulberrys, Piedmont Grocery, two Peets, and several other cafes and restaurants are an easy bike ride from many parts of town.

If you’re riding to Emeryville, look for me on my green Raleigh One Way single speed.
