Today is National Bike to Work Day
I helped the Fairfax Advocates for Better Bicycling (FABB) at their table at our local town center. I'm a member of FABB and got a bunch of people to sign up for our newsletter.
I also got to practice putting my bike on the front of a bus. That was cool. This isn't me, but it's one of the photos from our FABB website.
And of course, there were freebies.
As it wound up I realized I needed to get to Ashburn for a meeting so I jumped on my bike and headed out.
I meet a friend at the Wegman's out there every Friday. Today I discovered their bike rack on the north end of the building (I've been going to the other end, but I forgot my lock today so wanted to stay close by). It's a wave rack, which architects love and bicyclists don't. And look at this.
Do you see the problem? I know very few cyclists who smoke. But over and over again, next to the rack provided for the most healthy form of transportation, I see grocery stores doing this. Ick.
Day 17 ... over halfway!
