Bike To Work Day...

This probably should have been posted earlier this week, but... Every day is bike to work day for me, but today is the official Bike to Work Day for the Bay Area. The shop is an official MCBC Energizer Station, but didn't apparently commit before their website went up. However, West Marin has kind of created our own Bike to Point Reyes on Saturday May 17. Bicycle commuters can go to 511.org's website and register as a cycle commuter to win fabulous prizes - really! They will be raffling off a New Belgium cruiser.

On Saturday May 17, West Marin concludes its Bike to Work Week with a bike ride to Point Reyes Station ending here at the shop at 10:00 a.m. where a raffle will be held for folks who have registered their bike trips. Registering is easy. Every day you ride your bike to work or to school, e-mail your trip to bike94956@yahoo.com and that is your registration. Easy! For more info on the West Marin Bike to Work Week and the ride to Point Reyes, go to the Environmental Action Committee of West Marin's site.

(Follow up: Had 15 folks come through riding their bikes to work or school. Three groups were families riding from Inverness - mom, dad, kids all riding together. Very cool!)
