deb's new bike
Yesterday, I took my mother-in-law shopping for a new bike. The one she's been riding is almost as old as my husband, so it was time. Not only will she be riding it for fitness and recreation, but she plans on riding it to work several days a week. (She's a elementary school band teacher, and works at different schools each day. But two are close enough to make commuting by bike possible.) Score another one for the bikes.
Trek also has a program right now to encourage everyone to "Go By Bike." You can pledge to bike a certain number of miles, and it will calculate your savings in carbon and gas money. Plus, you'll be entered to win a free bike. I picked up the brochure at the bike shop yesterday, and it was a well designed argument in favor of biking. Perhaps we should all send one to this guy.
