It’s that time. And national press for this is bigger than I’ve ever seen before. Ideally, you should think of every day as Bike-To-Work Day, but why not start off small. I wish I had more time to put together an event, like maybe some breakfast stations or free treats from local coffee shops. Austin has some awesome coordination efforts for this day.
The above flyer says it all. Denton might not have real bike lanes (yet), but it does have a size advantage (in smallness) over Dallas, Houston, Austin, and any affiliated suburbs. You can ride to pretty much everything you need in Denton, and with relatively low friction (with drivers). Why not try the Friday commute on two wheels instead of four?
Coming up on Sunday there’s an apropos celebration of Bike Week festivities, and I’ll post more on that later.
