May 17th National Bike To Work Day

This is a great idea! Let’s all ride to work on our bicycles. It is always the 3rd Friday in May and has been created by the League of American Bicyclists who came from the League of American Wheelmen, formed in 1880. Back then you could ride anything to work that had wheels. Of course, the horse was the most natural thing to ride and I do not believe most horses have wheels. Now I am all for saving the environment and getting the exercise required to be healthy… that said, I’m not too sure about this ride a bike to work day. If you wear a suit and carry a briefcase this could be a challenge. if you wear a dress to work and carry a purse, it could be an issue. If you work an hour away by car, this could be an issue. It’s a great idea but it takes some preplanning and some extra effort on your part. Try the night before as a test to make sure this is practical for you.

How to celebrate – Ride your bike to work. I would suggest not taking the highway. Form a bike ride to work group.
