Heads Up: Bike-to-Work week is coming in May; you can win a new bike!

Okay, I've been thinking about this for awhile now. I quit smoking 141 days ago (November 19th), and pledged to regain my health this year. Part of my plan is to get more active and return to biking. But, man, biking in from Post Falls everyday seems a bit daunting. Heck, for me, I think it would be easier to kayak to work.

I wonder if I rode my bike to the park-n-ride lot and took the bus in from Liberty Lake if that would count for Bike-to-Work week? I'll have to call Barb Chamberlain (who is featured in the video above) and check the rules. If you participate, you could win a free bike from REI -- now, that's a pretty good incentive.

You can register to participate at the Bike to Work web site.
