Bike to Work Week 5/12 - 5/16

Get yourself in shape for the Bike Newton fun ride by biking to work the week preceding. (Just kidding. The Newton ride is just 2.5 miles. No training required.)

Bike to Work week is officially Bay State Bike Week, May 12-18. There's lots going on on Friday, May 16th, including commuting convoys from around the Boston area and a bikers breakfast at City Hall Plaza.

Newly elected Chairman of the Newton Bicycle/Pedestrian Task Force George Kirby has arranged for a Newton convoy. It's not on the schedule yet, but it will be. More information as it becomes available.

Make sure to sign up for the 50,000 mile challenge, an effort to have bicyclists commute 50,000 cumulative miles over the course of the week.

Haha, my ride to work is 2 miles, so 2.5 is a stretch ;-)

Actually I only got the bike a week ago, and only rode to work once, so I shouldn't make too much of it.

Ugh. I get too sweaty on my short commute to work. Can't do it. Sorry Sean.
