Bike to Work Day

18 May

Mark and I participated in our local Bike to Work day here in Edmond, OK.  It was a great event, with a larger number of participants than is typical for Bike to Work day. I’m not really surprised, like most places bicycling is becoming more popular here! In years past, it was rare to see people riding their bikes for transportation in Edmond now it is getting to be fairly common. Not large numbers yet, but at least we have a presence.

To me, that’s what Bike to Work day is really about: increasing community awareness of cyclists on the roads and most importantly making biking seem like a good alternative to driving as well as a good form of recreation and exercise.I think we did that.

Our ride took us along city streets and local trails from downtown Edmond to Hafer Park where we were treated to a great breakfast complements of Mercy Health and prizes donated by Al’s Bicycles-Edmond, University of Central Oklahoma, Edmond Bike Committee, Edmond Electric and Mercy. Thanks too to the Edmond Police department for providing police escort on bikes – wish I had them for all my rides!
