Bike To Work
Bike to Work Day. Stopped off at the College Park bike to work check point on my way to UMD. Not quite the numbers or fanfare as the Freedom Plaza event I went to last year, but still a good turn out. A well organized event by WABA. Figure this is occurring at numerous check points around the DC metro and other cities and towns in the country, and maybe it will help with the perception of cyclists and commuting. Specifically as it relates to jack-ass drivers who think bikes have no right being on the road.
I am supposed to ride over to Rock Creek Park later today for National Geographic’s BioBlitz. Rain is looking likely, which actually makes it more enticing. There’s something I like about working/hiking in the rain. Plus, it makes for a good alternative to riding when the weather sucks.
