Bike To Work Day

The League of American Bicyclists is promoting Bike-to-Work Week from May 14 to 18, 2012 and Bike-to-Work Day on Friday, May 18, 2012.

Bike-to-Work Day is an annual event held on various days in the Spring across the United States and Canada that promotes the bicycle as an option for commuting to work. Leading up to Bike-to-Work Day, national, regional, and local bicycle advocacy groups encourage people to try bicycle commuting as a healthy and safe alternative to driving by providing route information and tips for new bicycle commuters. On Bike-to-Work Day, these groups often organize bicycle-related events, and in some areas, pit stops along bicycle routes with snacks.
Bike-to-Work Day was originated by the League of American Bicyclists in 1956 and is a part of Bike-to-Work Week, which is in turn part of National Bike Month.

Hi Pam!!! I've been thinking about you. Hope all is well:)

Funny you should post this. While I was out in Idaho, the kids were showing me how they ride their bikes and I must say, I was mighty tempted!!! Time to look for a new bike, lol...

Thanks for sharing...

Looking for unusual ways to celebrate life, it’s only natural that I’d admire Pam and her ‘Live Every Day Like a Holiday’ blog. (http://gonetapott.blogspot.com/) Pam says we should "Live every day like a holiday." Be it good or bad. Sometimes you just have to eat it with a big spoon.” There are lots of fun and quirky holidays here; it’s always a good read.

Sweet blog! I found it while searching on Yahoo News. Do you have any tips on how to get listed in Yahoo News? I’ve been trying for a while but I never seem to get there! Thanks
