Biking to work

So the month of May is National Bike to Work month. It focuses on saving gas, energy, and keeping our united states citizens healthy since we are a rich and fat people who get lazy because we are used to our perks that we have such as cars, and electronics. Don't get me wrong I love having these little benefits in life but excessive amounts of these little pleasures soon take over and we lose who we as humans are.

Any whom, I have almost biked to work 70% of this month, sadly a little speed bump of rain and snow made it hard to get 100%. But my goal is to get up to 90% by the end of the month. We will see how I do, since vacation is going to cut into my percentages. That actually makes it a bit easier also cause the weather forecast says it should be semi cold in Idaho while we are sitting in the already semi chilled Oregon Coast.

I will post up pics when I am done with the bike to work month. I got a participants t-shirt and a reflector that gets discounts to local businesses that are participating in the event. So if you have a bike and are willing to take a bit more out of your day, make sure your business is participating and you can get some free stuff also =]
