Happy Bike to Work Day!

May 20, 2011

I actually have the day off of work today, but I didn’t want to miss the Bike to Work Day action.  I spent the morning volunteering with Transportation Alternatives who were on the Manhattan side of the Manhattan Bridge giving out free coffee and food, pumping up a few tires, and signing up new members. (Schwag altert: if you join or renew your TA membership today, you get a pair of nifty LED bike lights.  They went like hot cakes at the TA tent this morning.)

After the week we’ve had weather-wise, it was great to see so many riders take advantage of the sunny skies.  Of course, a lot of the people who rode to work this morning may have a wet commute home, but as I’ve learned, even a wet ride can sometimes beat a crowded subway train.  A day like today may convert a few more people into regular bike commuters.

Hope your ride was a good one!
