Bike to Work During National Bike Month

Are You Biking to Work During National Bike Month?

While most of the country celebrates Bike to Work Day on the third Friday of May, San Francisco (home of Sugar HQ) will be celebrating it on Thursday, May 13. In honor of the day, the San Francisco Bicycle Coalition will be serving coffee and snacks to cyclists throughout the city, as well as handing out free tote bags. There're also going to be a few pop-up bike mechanic stations, a raffle with some sweet prizes, and entertainment. While it can be a bit hectic, I am definitely making a point to ride to work on Thursday. It's a great way to increase bike awareness to motorists, and it encourages newbies to start riding to work. Most of all it's super fun, and a great way to meet people involved in the cycling community.

I'd love to know if you're planning on celebrating Bike to Work Day, or if you are making an extra effort to ride your bike throughout May in honor of National Bike Month. Tell me . . .

Luckily, the weather in Oregon has just turned nice. I will ride my bike at least 3 days next week...motivation permitting. ;)

Even though it only takes me 10 minutes to get to my job from my home by car I will have to pass. I have to drive through a very curvy and congested road to get to work. Plus, I have to be at work by 6:45 am every morning. I value my sleep and barely wake up in enough time for work as it is.

Not every day, but yes! My work recently started encouraging us to bike to work - they even set up a system where someone comes in every once in a while to fix your bike for free. It's amazing!

Definitely! I have what must be the world's best bike commute -- Capital Crescent Trail from my neighborhood to Georgetown, then the Rock Creek Trail to the Lincoln Memorial, then down the National Mall to 14th and Constitution. I stay off the road pretty much all the way -- 23 miles roundtrip!

No thanks.

I would if I didn't have to bike on such a dangerous and long road. It would take me at least an hour each way and I could easily get hit by a car going 55 mph. I will be biking around Riviera Maya next week though...I plan on seeing the sights that way instead of renting a car.

yes, i bike to school regardless. we have a great program called smarttrips that encourages alternative transportation, and rewards you with local gift certificates for not commuting to work/school in a car by yourself.

Wow! Snow in may! I wish I could, but I'm a babysitter and I have to pick them up from school and they might be annoyed. haha.

I wish I could, but I live 50 miles from where I work.

If I ever work later then 730 am to 9 am, I might, but it's probably around a 2-hour, dangerous bike ride for me. My state/county needs to get on those bike paths they have been promising for years! I would totally do it then, if it were safer.

I'll ride later but we currently have snow.

I work really close to home so I would love to! The road is too busy, though, and there's no bike lane, so I would really be risking my life every day. :( Plus the weather is still awful in the northeast...

I REALLY wish I could. I actually mapped it out once, and it would be 3+ hour ride. Actually, my commute is about an hour by car (shudder). It would be nice to work closer to where I live....
