That's A Wrap

Did you ride your bike to work on May 16? Did you come down for free pancakes? Did you enjoy them?

200 of you did - and that's a record for attendance - although in years past we've had no real good way to count people. But now we do...because we made friends with the Museum of Visual Materials. What a great venue for Bike To Work Day!

Thanks to these bike shops for making Sioux Falls Bike To Work Day a great success:
Harlan's Bike & Tour
Praire Cycles
Two Wheel Dealer

Thanks also to the individuals who show up to meetings, drink the coffee, and make the event happen.

The local daily covered the event. Here's the article.

Bike Bus

What is a “bike bus?” A bike bus is a group of people who bike to work in a group. “Bus” because there is a set route and timetable. “Bike” because all the “passengers” are on bikes!”

As one lady put it, in the following video, “It’s just a lovely way to start m’ day.” Enjoy!

Bike Bus. Call your friends and neighbors. Try it!

Spring is the time to layer on - then layer off

I rode in to work this morning and it was a bit chilly on the feet only. I wore a long sleeve base, track jacket, windproof jacket, wind/water proof tights, wool socks and MB shoes. On tonight's ride home I will have a lot less clothes on. Spring is the time to be prepared for anything. Things like cold, warmth, rain and wind do not have to be obstacles as long as you have layers to put on or take off.

The bike to work committee is pleased and thankful to have equal financial support and the participation of all four locally owned Sioux Falls bicycle shops.
Because the pancakes aren't going to make themselves.

"Upon arrival to the CubeFarm , one of my co-workers who knows I am an avid cyclist, was getting out of his car. He looked at me , smiled , and made the comment 'Spring must finally be here.'"

It will add a few miles but can you join us for pancakes, Eayste?
