May 13: Bike-to-Work Day


We all know that May 13 is Bike-to-Work Day, but how many of us actually ditch the car keys and strap on the helmet? “It’s easier than you think,” encourages Sonoma County’s 2010 Bike Commuter of the Year Geoffrey Skinner, “the biggest hurdle is getting out the door.” Skinner, who commutes daily from Sebastopol to work at the Santa Rosa library, is right, of course. With energizer stations set up all over Sonoma, Marin and Napa Counties, dusting off and hopping on the old Schwinn is not only easy, it’s a great way to get warmed up for watching the Tour of California. Who knows—you might even make a habit of it! It’s healthy, environmentally friendly and, like Skinner says, easier than you think. Give it a shot on Thursday, May 13. Complete info. at Meline
