Bike to Work Day is Friday, May 18th. The idea is to promote bicycle commuting as a viable and enjoyable way to get to and from work. The benefits of this activity are many, including reducing your carbon footprint, saving money on gas, and building in some exercise to your day to day routine. Given the distance many of us drive, and the traffic we encounter, the time it takes to ride isn't all that much more than the time you burn sitting in traffic, anyway. In many cities, it take less time to ride than to drive.
Spin is supporting this initiative by making ourselves a rendaevous point for people to gather and ride in together if they choose. We'll have someone at the shop by 7am to provide free basic mechanical support, coffee and baked goods, as well as offering a 15% discount to commuters between 7am and 9am, then again between 4pm and 6pm.
Others in the cycling community have similar initiatives, all aimed at making your first (or just your most recent) commute easy and enjoyable. Check out the Facebook page listing the various participants!
Leave the car at home Friday May 18th! (and every other day, too!)
