City Urges Residents To Bike To Work

Next Monday, the city of Coeur d'Alene is encouraging residents to bike to work, launching an annual Bike-to-Work week with a ride from the Silver Lake Mall to the Coeur d'Alene Library. The event will begin at 7:30 a.m. in front of the new Sports Authority and continue to the library, where coffee and doughnuts will be served. In a Coeur d'Alene Today post, Amy Ferguson writes that the goal of the Bike-to-Work Week is to show “community pride and commitment to better health, reducing dependence on foreign oil, reducing traffic congestion, and reducing pollution. You can see a list of Bike-to-Work Week events. here.

DFO: I rode my bike for the first time Saturday, from the Borah Triangle to the waterfront and then north along the Centennial Trail to Riverstone. I just had it tuned. It rode extremely well. May have to bike to work a day or two next week, too. How about you?

Question: Have you ever biked to work?
