Well this week is bike to work week and people here do a great job of participating, it helps that there are lots of incentives. I was on vacation Monday but biked in Tues, Wed, and Today. I feel bad about not biking in Thursday but the pain in my shins led me to drive. Wed was great as local businesses set up free breakfast stops (see map of locations) around town so you could bike to get your breakfast and then head off to work. My favorite was Biff's Bagels where they had ample bagels, cream cheese, orange juice and coffee.
So far I only have some data but looks like on Monday 439 people biked 3889 miles to get to work and Tuesday was 447 with 3792 miles. I have to guess Wednesday may be a bit higher with the free breakfasts around town but maybe not. Commuting other than requiring a bit more planning wasn't all that bad so I hope to continue to be able to ride in to work 2-3 times per week when the weather is good.
Snowbowl Road Ride
I wasn't really pushing it on the way up but next time I think I'll have to time myself and see how long it takes me to get to the top and then set a goal for the climb by the end of the summer. Really I think the better goal is for me to be able to ride down in my drops by the end of the summer without having to stop and without breaking everytime I got over 22 on the downhill.
