I Bike to Work

Cool breeze, sun shining and the smell of fresh cut grass start my Friday morning off right. I’m riding my bike down a street that I never take when I drive my car. I use the 20-minute bike ride to think about the day and reflect on what a great neighborhood I live in.

Not only was the weather perfect for riding I had a good reason to ride: Bike to Work Day. Every year the League of American Bicyclists designates a Friday in May as Bike to Work Day. Start-Thinking encourages and supports this initiative. Some of the benefits for riding include:

•    Encourages a healthy lifestyle
•    Benefits the environment
•    Fresh perspective of your city
•    Fun

I was excited to meet other cyclists in Oldtown Square today and eat a free Chipotle burrito. There were about 65 cyclists who showed up to not only eat burritos and mingle, but to get a free bike inspection from Lee’s Bike Shop, Bicycle Pedaler and the Bike Cave.

It was great to see everyone ride out to support the cause and raise awareness of bicyclists in our community. Get ready for next year.
