Bike to Work Week

Today is the first day of Bike to Work Week, culminating in Bike to Work Day on this Friday, May 18th. So if you didn't bike today, no worries you still have 4 more days. Well, you really have the rest of your commuting life to bike to work if you subscribe to the "Today is the first day of the rest of your biking life." Plus, the entire month of May is National Bike Month - you have the whole month.

The League of American Bicyclists has a listing on their website of Bike Week events happening around the country. Thirty-five states have listings of events and I look forward to the day that all 50 states promote biking as a means of transportation. Hopefully there will be some infra-structure improvements to make it easier to get around on a bike.

Now, I know for some of you it is impossible to bike to work...so why not bike to a friend's house this week. Or if you are going out for dinner, bike to the restaurant. If you are biking at night don't forget to use your bike lights (that is plural because you want to have one in the back as well as one in the front), and your helmet of course!!!

Bike somewhere, so you can answer a resounding YES to the above question.

i'm lucky cuz i live in amsterdam and they have places for bikes everywhere, so i bike to school and friends houses whenever the weather allows me, but it helps me to get energised and get in some easy excercise

My trouble with biking to work is that we don't have facilities to take a shower, and by the time I'd get to work by bike I'd most definitely needed one. Plus a new makeup, etc, that will become just too troublesome to take the trouble. I'd rather leave the exercise till afterwork-hours.
