Bike Month has officially begun! We kicked off bike month with a bicycle commute with Carson City Mayor Bob Crowell. We all met over at Sunset Park, where Jeff Potter picked up the mayor on his tandem.
The weather started off questionable, and was even raining slightly when we left the house. By the time we got to the park though, the weather cleared, and we were treated to a beautiful overcast spring morning. Fragrant air, green grass, and flowers blooming everywhere. You can definitely appreciate these things more when out on the bike.
We rode down the historical streets of Robinson, Mountain, King, Thompson, and 4th. We stopped for a bit at the Mayor’s office, and then proceeded to Comma Coffee.
The Nevada Appeal and News Carson City were on hand to report on our event and talk about Bike Month. The mayor remarked that riding the bike to work was an invigorating way to start off the day. I couldn’t agree more!
The next Bike Month event is the Bicycle Commuter Class at Comma Coffee, Monday, May 4th, at 6:30 PM. Hope to see you there!
