Ride to Work Day
« on: June 17, 2016, 03:40:01 PM »
According to Cycle World Magazine, Monday is ride to work day. I don't typically ride to work because I prefer the less traveled roads, but this sounds like as good of an excuse as any. So who else is going to be riding on Monday?

This is coming up in a couple of weeks (June 19, 2017), so I figured I'd throw out a reminder. For those of you who don't use your motorcycle as a commuter, this is just something to consider.

I've driven my truck to work maybe 5 times since January. I've been riding a bicycle thru winter, and now I'm split 50/50 between it and the motorcycle.

So yeah, I'll definitely be on 2 wheels.

I didn't ride much for over a year. But I'll shoot for this time.
Cool.
