Bike to Work Month (at least for me)

"Officially" bike to work month is in May. That seems like a reasonable time: the weather is pretty warm and it's early enough in the year that any converts will likely keep biking throughout the summer. I'm taking a slightly more hardcore approach. My bike to work month is February. If I can bike to work most days in February I think the rest of the year will be easy! We should also be able to see if this has any impact on our fuel consumption since I started tracking that a month ago. I'll be updating this post with my experiences:

Bus to Work Month

Good luck on doing the Bike to Work thing! I've been happily Bussing to work for over a year now, and it's much nicer than driving all the way up to Boulder.

Kudos to you! I rode my bike

Kudos to you! I rode my bike to work for awhile and when I got tired of that I conned my boss into just letting me work at home.

Agree!!

I´m absolutely agree with you. Bike is better than a car in May.
just think on the wind in your face. No sweat. Excercise. Good!!
