1 World, 2 Wheels

My local bike shop is promoting a Go By Bike challenge, sponsored by Trek. I have pledged to ride my bike to work, instead of taking a car. It's only a mile. Right now, it's not much of a challenge. I only go a couple of days a week, and the weather is fine. We'll see if I can keep that pledge when the weather gets rough, and I have to put in nine and ten hour days.

Over to the right, I have installed a widget that tells you how many people have pledged here in my little town (we associate ourselves with the bike shop when we sign up). Alas, that widget only seems to work on Internet Explorer. I can't see it on Firefox at all. Perhaps someone will fix something some time.

In any case, I urge you to think about trips that you could make by bike. It's good for you, good for the environment, and a lot of fun.
