    Not that I need to remind anyone here...

    This is national Bike to Work Week.

    http://biketoworkweek.org/index.php

    http://www.bikeleague.org/programs/bikemonth/

    And this Friday is Bike to Work Day.

    Of course...every day around here is bike to work day...right?

    Anyway...harass your colleagues and get them to suck it up for a day. Who knows...you might win some converts.

    Great to hear that there was 30 or so riding with the Mayor, Billy Kenoi, today in Hilo. We had a Bike Commuting Safety Meeting on the Kona side at the Natural Energy Lab. We didn't have as big of a turn out as you guys with the Mayor in Hilo... However, PATH gave a great presentation of all of the various difficult spots in Kona as a cyclist and what would be the safest way to approach the situation, which included in some cases not to cycle in that spot.

    Anyway, I did see two newbies on the road today, so perhaps these events do inspire people into doing something out of the ordinary, like cycling to work. Just a plug for the Natural Energy Lab of Hawaii Authority, we have ~300 employees at the facility and ~12 regular cyclist.

    Aloha,

    I kind of have a love/hate relationship with this whole bike to work week stuff. Some people should probably not bike to work (like the safety-vest dude who doesn't look both ways, blows through the stop sign, and wonders why the car behind him is honking).

    It's great to see more people riding...although I hate to admit it.

    Bike to Work Day here in the Bay Area is Thursday, May 14 this year. Lots of incentives and a raffle. Friday, May 15th is Bike Away From Work Day at St James Gate Irish Pub in Belmont!

    But like Tweezak sez, every day is Bike to Work Day!

    Funny, last week in LA I noticed the freeway sign said "It's bike to work day" on both the 11th and the 4th of May. Not sure what it said the other days as Monday is the only car day for me, but it was odd.
