some thoughts regarding National Bike Month.

I saw; a teenage girl whiz by on a road bike, elderly man ride to the store on a city bike, and another elderly man on a road bike. But that is it this morning!

I hope the people who rode their bikes for transportation during bike month- and bike week- keep riding.

It is one thing to ride for Bike Month, it is another thing to ride because you make a conscious decision to change . Whether you are seeking; better health, saving money, cleaner environment, or just plain fun, I would like to encourage you to ride your bike for transportation, or walk.

Do not take the mass transit unless you need to.

You are important to the world. We need your help to make it a better place. Ride your bike, walk, enjoy life. If we want to see change, from all people, we must be the change we want to see.

As I write this, I saw two more cyclists riding by,  both for transportation a woman going to the store, and a man in street clothes. Oh, and there is another, coming to the store on his road bike.
So come on people. Today we ride, tomorrow...we ride, we ride.

"Change does not roll in on the wheels of inevitability, but comes through continuous struggle." Martin Luther King, Jr.
