A good indicator of bicycle safety in a city is women who bike? True story. Read more here.
That biking isn't just for some, it's for all? People around the world are trying to promote that message AND those behaviors (they aren't one in the same). Read more here.
What else can I tell you? I've had the luxury of riding my bike to work every day for almost two months now. Bicycle Commuters of Anchorage (soon to be known by a new, shorter name) host the annual Summer Commuter Challenge and I'm participating with a team from work. We're in 7th place for medium teams in Anchorage - hell yea!
Once in a while, we hit Alaskan-style roadblocks:
Mama Moose & two calves, blocking my way to yoga!
I'm also working to expand my rides outside of work and home. Yoga, dinners, social outings, foraging and Costco (that one time) are all fair game for me and the wheels. My hope is to make it such a habit that come snowfall, it's second nature to ride to work and I can continue commuting via bike!
Don't leave home without the essentials.
