Commuting to workout

Andrew Casteel —

Commuters by the hundreds took two wheels to work and school on Thursday as part of the 16th annual Bike to Work Day in Sonoma County.

"We have 335, a little bit up from last year," said Santa Rosa transportation planner Mike Ivory, who was counting bicyclists at Santa Rosa City Hall, where booths were set up for food, drink and information. "The people who did come in were totally stoked. At 7:30 we had a crowd of 200 people here, a real party atmosphere."

May is National Bike Month, and Thursday, May 13th marks Sonoma County’s 16th annual Bike to Work Day, a celebration of bicycling as a healthy, fun and viable form of everyday transportation.

“Whether you want to save money, improve your health, or protect the environment,” says Sandra Lupien, Bike to Work Coordinator at Sonoma County Bicycle Coalition, “biking to work is a great way to do it. Almost everyone can bike to work at least some of the time, and Bike to Work Day is the perfect time to get started.”

We'll have members of the Sonoma County Board of Supervisors flipping pancakes and gifts for all who find other ways to get to work than driving alone in a car.

Why not 3 or 4 bike to work day in a year?

Why not have 2,3 or 4 bike to work day in a year? I personally like to see it. Sometime we can't always bike to work on that 1 particular day. But if we have more than 1 bike to work day in the summer time some of us can make at least 1 of those days.
