Dust Off Your Bicycle...

...because this week, it's National Bike(or Walk) to Work Week.   Friday is National Bike/Walk to Work Day.  In honor of this, I thought it would be a great time to clean the cobwebs out of my walking shoes and do as much as I can on foot this week.

Here in the Seattle area, the Cascade Bicycle Club Foundation has great information regarding this yearly event.  During the entire month of May there are several businesses which are sponsoring events and contests which are geared towards motivating us to get out of our cars, whether by biking to work or walking.  The other purpose for this day is to "help generate political momentum for the creation of more safe, convenient bicycle facilities."

One sponsor in particular is Starbucks. On Friday, May 16, from 6-9:00 a.m. there will be booths set up at 40 commuter stations all throughout King County(you can find a list of stations here).  Stop by one of these stations on your bike and you can enter to win lots of great prizes, pick up a free water bottle and snacks, buy a t-shirt and have your bike checked out by one of the shop station sponsors. 

If you visit the Cascade Bicycle Club website you can find all sorts of information regarding bicycle commuting, and you can also download a 32 page booklet which outlines what you need to know to start commuting by bike. 

What a great opportunity for sedentary people like me to get in gear and start walking again.  As if rising gas prices aren't enough motivation!

Lisa - My son recently learned to ride his bike, and we are now going on regular 5-mile bike rides.  I haven't had this much energy in ages!
