    As my office is down the stairs from my house, no bike to work BUT Grant Petersen of Rivendell fame will be in town promoting his new book "Just Ride", so we are riding over to the event and then going with the group to a local brew pub for dinner.

    Just getting over a torn ligament in my ankle. First short ride in over a month last night. But, I think riding slowly into work and just taking it easy Thursday will be just the ticket.
    Bagels and coffee for those who show up to work on bikes - nice of the workplace to do that and I'll do anything for free food (Graduate School does that to you, even 20 yrs out, I still will do anything for free food).

    the city of new orleans actually held its annual bike to work day in April, maybe because its already unbearably hot in the month of May. It was great ride with a great turn out. To all those participating, Enjoy!!

    I'm out. I woke up with wrist pain. No work for me. I haven't missed a day of work in years, but it would be stupid to not let it rest.

    Fessing up, I wouldn't ride anyway. It's pouring and windy.

    I was just realizing that tomorrow is the one day this week I won't bike, because I'm going to Montreal. I'll use just about every other form of transportation except boat! But our local Bike to Work Day, May 24, I'll be here (and therefore on a bike).

    Not officially a Bike to Work Day here in my city, but it was a beautiful morning to ride to work on an 'unofficial' Bike to Work Day.

    I rode today, as usual. Pretty ordinary ride in, but I'm looking forward to the ride home-- the 4-lane road that parallels the MUP will be closed for regatta prep which means I won't have to deal with rollerbladers, joggers, strollers, etc, etc, etc. Yay!

    Just got an email that Philly's official bike to work day is next Friday but I have jury duty next Friday. ugh! I might take it easy and ride the fixie in street clothes, but I also might just take the train. Although, showing up sweaty and disheveled might reduce my chances of getting stuck on a jury...hmmm. Bike to work day here was pretty weak last year (Albuquerque, Portland, Spokane were all WAY better) so I guess I wouldn't be missing much.

    Good ride for me today. I usually try to ride several times a week.

    We had a great morning for a ride yesterday and I rode with a group estimated at 400 at the start, though the red lights broke up the groups along the way. I've been riding to work a few times a week, but usually alone so this was a lot of fun!

    Trek: did they play the wiggle song on Kfog? Funny

    I'll be doing my 6th BTWD this Friday. Unfortunately, this year I feel like a poser since I have not yet commuted at all this year.
    I'd rather be swimming...biking...running...and eating cheesecake...

    I thought BTWD was for people who didn't bike except in May.
    A friend of mine said he always drove his car on BTWD because it's about "alternative transportation" and for him, biking & walking is normal and using the car is alternative!

    Our city dosen't start Bike To Work Week until May 28th. There is one station I hit on my commute in the morning on Wednesday, and another one I can go out of my way to hit on Friday. There is another close one, but it dosen't open until 8:00am by which time I'll already be at work >: (

    I am really exited about getting a free muffin, haha.

    I bike to work everyday anyway, it's faster than taking public transit and I don't have to worry about missing a connection if I'm 5 minutes late.
