May is National Bike Month

Bike Month 2010

The League of American Bicyclists is promoting Bike-to-Work Week 2010 from May 17-21 and Bike-to-Work Day today, Friday, May 21. It's a little late for me to advocate you biking to work today since it's already here! I'll do better about promoting it earlier next year!

Since we work a little far from where we live it's a little tough for us to bike to work (the unfortunate part of living in rural Virginia), but we definitely celebrate biking most every week in our house by either biking at a local park or taking a road ride to the Petersburg Farmers Market.

Bike Month is the perfect time to get outside and enjoy this beautiful weather. Dynamo and I enjoy biking together and with our friends. In the photo above, Dynamo was trying out our adopted niece's bike last weekend. I think he's a little big for it, don't you?

Remember to always share the road with bikers! In the state of Virginia, it's a law that drivers must give bikers at least 2 feet of clearance. Read about the effort to change the law from 2 feet to 3 feet here. Please be respectful of bicyclists. To learn more about bike laws in Virginia, visit the Virginia Department of Transportation.

Please remember to share the road!
