As you may already know June is Bike Month. And although I didn’t participate in yesterdays ‘Bike to Work’ day (my bike was in the shop, I SWEAR), I think biking to work is a great excuse to get two (additional) mini-workouts in each day, instead of the usual mundane, crowded bus ride.
So as of June 1st I will be giving up my bus pass. No, that doesn’t mean that I won’t be riding the bus or the metro when I’m going out on a Saturday night. I just mean, Monday to Friday my commute to and from work, shall now be via bicycletta.
So if you too feel like saving the hundred-ish dollars you spend on a metro pass, or if you are so over this traffic gridlock on your commute, join me for bike month, and take the pledge to ride your bike to work in June.
