Get in Gears

On May 17th (aka, this Friday) join your fellow commuters in Bike to Work Day. It's exercise, fresh air, saving on gas - what's not to like?!  The Stamford Times points to an increase in bike commuters, saying the 2010 Census has those numbers up 40% across the US and 50% in CT since 2000.

Stamford has a downtown event to celebrate your pedal power too. From 7:30 to 9am, join your neighbors in Veteran's Park at the corner of Atlantic and Main Streets for giveaways and free refreshments (and a few bragging rights).  There are similar events all throughout CT.  See the Bike to Work Day link above for a full listing.
