Bike to Work Week will soon be here!

The 2014 annual event will take place May 10 to 16 so if you are looking for a great opportunity to ride your bike to work, school and fun, head to the Truckee Meadows Bicycle Alliance's website bikenevada.org and register! Registration is free and there are prizes and perks for doing so. You can also find and participate in the week's event and ride your bike to a baseball game or a pancake feed. If you are planning on joining in on the fun, I would love to hear from you in the comments! Remember, you don't have to do this alone. After you register, find a group and say 'hello'! You can even sign up your workplace for the Commuter Challenge and rally your co-workers to participate.

Are you interested in biking to work or school but are not sure how to get started? If you stick around, I will cover in future posts:
  • how to find your perfect bike (if you don't already have one or just want a new one)
  • how to plan your safe route
  • what the local laws are so that you are informed
  • where to find support such as classes and bike shops
  • the clothing and gear you may need to make your commute comfortable (because that is what this blog is all about--bicycle commuting, cute clothing and gear)
  • and so much more!!
Although I commute to work on average four times a week, I will definitely participate this year. So see I hope to see you on bikenevada.org!
