Bike To Work Week

Spokane's Bike to Work Week started off with an excellent breakfast on Monday morning. The rain-threatening weather probably scared off more of the fair weather riders. Regardless, there was a good turnout and lots of smiling faces. Mountain Gear provided pancakes, Lifestyle Granolas provided granola and yogurt, and Roast House coffee provided the coffee. There was good participation by the city leadership. Mayor David Condon, City Council President Ben Stuckart, and City Councilman Jon Snyder all spoke to the crowd.

The Energizer Stations were up on Wednesday morning. I left home early to catch as many as I could before going to work. Again, more smiling faces, this time from volunteers sitting outside ready to provide Roast House coffee, bananas, oranges, Cliff bars, raisins, and cookies.

The wrap up party was held at the Steam Plant Grill yesterday afternoon. Pedals2People repeated the bike check-in and checkout-out service they provided at the kickoff breakfast. The Steam Plant Grill put out a nice spread and every cyclist's favorite thing--free beer! A very nice way to cap off a great week.
