    What's your city doing for Bike-to-Work Month?

    I work in a city that's pretty bike friendly and the city encourages and promotes biking as an alternative mode of transportation. Mid May it holds special events for bike month. Every year the city holds a bike safety event for city staff, and I usually go to them--mainly for the free pizza. Usually it's a small group with the usual faces. I usually know what the speaker will cover, but it's always interesting nonetheless. You also get a free t-shirt. Last year I never got mine and it was a cool design. The city will also have a special day for all bike commuters (usually city employees) to meet up early in the morning at City Hall and get free coffee and snacks, plus meeting other commuters and sometimes the Metro bus will come and show how to use the bike rack on the bus. I've always wanted to go to one of these things, but it's on a day I don't work and it's really early in the morning :P

    You have no excuse for driving to work
    (unless you don't have studded tires)
    (no excuse for that either)

    Here in the frozen north our bike month is actually in June. But there's a whole festival with lots of different events: Bikeology Festival Bike Month, Nearly Here June 2012: Edmonton, Alberta, Canada.

    Bike-to-work breakfasts, bicycle-powered smoothies on the way home, bike movies, and weekly bike salons to discuss bike-related stuff. It's a good time.

    If my city is doing anything, it would be at least an hour ride each way to participate. I don`t think I`ll be missing much anyway. Maybe they`ll FedEx me a doughnut? Beam me up a free smoothie?

    What CB said X 10. I'd settle for a "Share the road' program.

    Oh, goody, that guy is every cyclist`s pal
    The article says that the mayor wouldn`t give an interview, but that several cyclists were happy to be interviewed. Then it doesn`t include those interviews?

    I dunno if it's fair to say nothing.

    I read some vaguely-worded threats.

    Or were we talking about just pro-bicycle activities?

    Nothing in the small town of Mt. Pleasant, Iowa although Iowa City/Coralville is about 45 minutes north and is having different activities all month long. Think Bicycles

    Maybe free T-shirts for cyclists. They come complete with tire tread tracks and "Park Here" legend and matching toe tag.

    Sometimes nothing much is good.
