I really, really do!!! Riding my bike has been wonderful and I have kept a clean 100% record for the Bike to Work Month challenge since I received it last Thursday. My trip is an easy 3 miles each way so I don’t really have an excuse not to ride. Plus it hasn’t been rainy so I really don’t have an excuse. Riding to work I think helps my overall energy level, work productivity, and mood. Here is a brief glimpse into my new daily commute:
And Friday, being the official Bike to Work Day, was full of fun events for the Seattle biker. It started off in the morning with commute stations set up by different corporate sponsors giving out free bike swag and snacks on many blocks in Seattle. Starbucks gave me a free tall beverage (I went with my old standby of the skinny cinnamon dolce) for coming in with my helmet on. And after work the Velo bike shop in Belltown provided Tom Douglass appetizers and drinks at their hosted bike party from 4:30-6:30pm!!! And then I got another free drink from Starbucks while talking to my mom…this time an iced skinny mocha. Cinnamon Dolce > Mocha…but free is always amazing!
And though my commute might not be as cool as some of these people it is still fun to read about them:
I love to be active, be outside and be in the sun. I am shy but friendly, lazy but active, motivated but content, and I would smile my entire life if I could. I have lived in Michigan all my life until I took a chance to move to the Pacific Northwest in 2011 after graduating from the University of Michigan. It has been a great adventure. I am very excited to see where this chapter in my life takes me!
