Dont forget to ride to work tomorrow.

http://www.ridetowork.org/

Tomorrow is the anual ride to work day. 07-18-07 Wdenesday

Ride your motorcycle or scooter on this day to demonstrate:
The number of motorcyclists to the general public and to politicians.
That motorcyclists are from all occupations and all walks of life.
That motorcyclists can reduce traffic and parking congestion in large cities.
That motorcycles are for transportation as well as recreation.
That motorcycling is a social good.

Thumbs up

Hey, I vote that we make EVERY day a "ride to work" day.....

Just take along some rain gear, just in case.

I made sure to do it last year.
Right now it's saying a 60% chance of thunderstorms here , and it's currently raining pretty good .

I'll have to check before work, but I'm gonna try.

This is from last year (or maybe 2 years ago???). Good thing I work nights. The boss probably wouldn't have liked this.....

I ride everyday that chance of rain is 20% or less all 12 months. This is not one of them. We get 75% of our annual rainfall from July - September, so not a lot of bike commuting is possible.

Unhappy stuck on four wheels

I have to stay at work through 8:00 tonight, and heavy thunderstorms are predicted ~ I'll have to be a cager today!

Here is the Ride to Work web site: http://www.ridetowork.org.

On the positive side, I'm riding from the Ohio River to the Upper Peninsula of Michigan this coming weekend ~ hope to post photos!
