Bike to Work

I feel terrible that I have neglected to wish you all a Happy National Bike Month. There are several sites where you may learn about the month, including the League of American Bicyclists. Here in the Nutmeg State, Bike Walk Connecticut has several events you may attend. If you would like a little competition in your life, be sure to sign up for the National Bike Challenge.

This week has been designated Bike to Work Week,  and Friday will be Bike to Work Day. Though the forecast is subject to change, the Hartford area is currently on tap to have absolutely perfect Bike to Work Day weather. You have no excuse!

There are two bike to work requirements. Wear a helmet and follow the rules of the road. Other than that, everything is up to you. It doesn’t matter what type of bike you ride, the speed you choose, or the clothes you wear.

If these guys could ride to work circa 1910, you can certainly do it in 2012 (click to enlarge photo).
