Bike To Work Day May 17th
May is bike to work (or school) month. A month not specific enough for you? O.K. The 17th is bike to work day. Now get out of your damn car and pedal!
We’ve heard all of the excuses why you can’t ride your bike. For one day out of the year, let’s hear some excuses why you can’t possibly drive to work (or school). I’ll start:
I can’t drive because it’s too expensive.
I can’t drive because parking is impossible.
I can’t drive because I’m getting out of shape.
I can’t drive because of the extra ferry wait.
I can’t drive because it’s too close to home
I can’t drive because it leaves me out of touch with the world around me.
I can’t drive because it’s dangerous, and I know someone who got hurt in a car crash.
I can’t drive because it’s hard on our infrastructure and bad for the environment.
Pick a couple of reasons not to drive this one day, and share them with us. By the way, we want some pictures of everyone riding their bikes to work (or school). Email a photo to us, or bring one in to the shop, and we’ll give you a new multi-tool or an inner tube for your effort.
If your job happens to be riding a bike (I’m talking about you, Kiel Reijnen), just ride your bike to the store.
