Bike to Work Week

Short update:  This week is Bike to Work Week in WI  - guess I don't know if this is observed in other States during the same week.

I have been having a blast biking to and from work this week.  So far I have ridden my bike Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday.  Oh course the exercise is nice - 15 miles round trip - but the best part is that there is a stand on the bike path, located about 4 blocks from my office, that serves GREAT coffee and pastries every morning for bike to work week.  The organization putting this all on also has someone there doing minor bike repairs.  On Monday I had Craig check out my rear brakes - he took the cable completely out of the plastic shield, lubed it and re-attached it and adjusted the brakes.

Well - you might think that coffee and donuts on the bike path is as good as it gets . . .  nope . . . it gets better . . . tomorrow is Bacon on the bike path day.  Yup - they will be serving bacon!

Coffee -pastry - bacon . . . what better way to start the day!

Yea to biking to work!


  1. That's awesome! Love that you are driving to/from work.

  2. Haha. Only in Wisconsin. I biked Tuesday and Wednesday (thought it would storm Monday am), but my 1.5 mile ride to work isn't worthy of bacon :).

  3. There is nothing really close enough to my house I could reasonably bike to. Well, maybe if they served bacon I could find something...

  4. Bike to work week sounds awesome! Being self employed, I could bike to work whenever, but no coffee, pastries or bacon will be waiting for me. No bike fixer either :) Enjoy!

  5. Bacon makes everything better! What a cool area you live in that embraces and encourages fun and exercise. I'm jealous!

  6. that's awesome. i finally am back on "the path" with my good ol' gary fisher. yea! back at it.

  7. So glad that bike to work week was a success!

    Thank you for identifying my plant! I googled it and you are right. Thank you so much. Off to write it down so I don't forget.
