“Bike to Work” with Rings & Things Girls

May 15, 2009

One good cause that gets a lot of support at Rings & Things is Bike to Work Week.  That’s this week, so there’s still time to promote it here!

Bike to Work Week 2009 in beautiful Spokane!

The Rings & Things Girls challenged the Boys to recruit the bigger Bike to Work Week team this year.  With the week almost over, the Girls have eight bikers registered.  The Boys had, um, seven.

The Girls win!

A big old hand signal and a tip of the bike helmet to all of the winning team’s members!

As you know, it’s not always easy to arrange everything so that you can commute by bicycle.  One of the Girls suddenly found herself without a bike, but went out and rented one to come through on her pledge.  Others had various adventures too…the weather at the BTWW kickoff breakfast in Spokane’s Riverfront Park being one of them. 🙂

Thanks to Nate for providing a group portrait of our commuter heroines with their favorite wheels:

    I’d SO be all over that. Except that here in Vegas from June-September, it’s 100 or higher during my 8:00am commute. blarg.

    Good on the R&T Ladies for making a commitment and sticking to it! What was the average commute length?

    That’s a question for Selina…let me check!

    Okay, we estimated about 3 miles average, for the one-way commute. Not bad, huh?

    Congratulations to the R&T Girls’ Team! Commuting by bike sounds like (given the right commute) fun.

    Spokane is a reasonably bike-friendly town, luckily. (If only because we have so many quiet side streets!)
