Looks more like a fun ride than a commute, snowjnky
My Bike to Work season opens today, I try to ride in on Thursdays for a while. No photos on the am segment. From home to WC BART>>>Fruitvale Station. I stopped at the BART stations Bike Center for some PSI on my rear tire, then off to the Bayfarm Island Wind Tunnel. My return segment is all bike. Todays route is into Lake Chabot and take Bass Cove/Goldenrod/Jackson Grade/Brandon, exit on to Redwood road and roll on the pavement back to WC. 30 miles.
I ride to work everyday and anywhere else I go.
It saves a ton of money on not having to pay for gas insurance ect...
I haven't owned a vehicle since July of 2004 and frankly hardly miss it.
If I need a truck I will rent one from time to time.
By the way that's a nice long ride
Its worth it to see some new faces who otherwise wouldn't ride to work or didnt know it was easy. We had 370 folks come to our station on w.grand. Rode to lunch @ 10th and Wood in west Oakland with some co-workers. Days damn near over already. BTWD Happy hour downtown..
business as usual today (which is good). I do a commute combo with bike and caltrain then 2 or 3 times per week ride the full distance home from work. Train was a little more crowded with bikes than usual today but not too much.
Bike to Work Day is one day I know I won't be able to ride to work because I coordinate one of the Energizer Stations. It was great to see so many people out on bikes. We had over 100 people more pass by our station that we had last year. Highlight: Having a former U.S. National Team Member, Olympic cyclist, and member of the United States Bicycling Hall of Fame stop by our station and chat. Low light: having a cyclist taken out by a car on the other side of the intersection from our station. Also, far, far too many people out riding without wearing a helmet.
Snowjnky, did you stop for banana shakes at the falafel drive through? YUM!!!
Here's a few shots of mine. Repeats if you are one of my Facebook friends.
Mtn View bridge to geese on the trail. Past the James Moore memorial then hooked up with a group of Facebook employees. Rode with them to the Facebook energizer station. Continued north, another gratuitous bridge shot, then stopped at Hiller Aviation Museum. Safe and sound at work at the Shores Center. Nice surprise in the musette bag, a cool and handy little blinky light!
