I love Bike to Work Day. I think it is one of the best events. It encourages alternative transportation to get us out of our cars and other oil-powered vehicles, it is a fun exercise, and it connects your work life with your personal life. In the Greeley area, on a warm Wednesday in June there are a variety of breakfast stations set up all around town. You can go to one, or all of them.
Britton and I live on the outskirts of town a little bit, so there were no stations on my way to work. So I arranged with one of my co-workers to meet up at the downtown one. It is about 2-3 miles from home, so not too bad. We had free bagels from Einstein’s Bagels and coffee, grabbed a free frisbee and were on our way to work.
Britton would have liked riding to work, but since he works in Longmont, it’s a much harder ride (45 miles) with a freeway in between! I do need to start riding to work more since I only live about 2 miles away. The summer that we had really high gas prices, I was riding about 4 times a week! Price really does influence people’s behavior!
