May 11th is Bike to Work Day in the San Francisco Bay Area. It also happens to be Global Bike to Work Day, although I don’t know who decided that. All I know is Strava started promoted this, and it stuck in everyone’s mind.
The problem for me is I start on the road by 6:30, and most Energizer Stations don’t have their tent set up by the time I get there. I can always count on the station on San To.as Aquino MUT at Agnew. They usually have a nice spread. Bagels, M&Ms, coffee, … Mmm, nice way to start BTWD.
It was a pretty good turnout. Nice to see happy smiling cyclist faces on the trail. I did see one trike, so that’s the only odd bike I saw out there. Yes, there were Bromptons, Dahons, and a few recumbents, but strange that I didn’t see any Bike Fridays.
Next station was at Lawrence Expressway and Baylands Park. More bananas, and Hobee coffee cake … Mmm. Starting to get full now … LOL
I ride further on and a couple of stations just barely had their table set up, and another had it all laid out but no one there. Odd … I had enough anyways, so just straight into the office.
I know that National Bike To Work Day is next week, and some cities don’t have it till next month.
We also had a Bike to Work lunch, but that was the day previous to Bike to Work Day. This is all very confusing.
Hope everyone had a good Bike to Work Day. Let’s keep on riding, and not just do it on Bike to Work Day. Let’s do that everyday!
