Bike all year round, not just this week

Spokane bicycle advocate Barb Chamberlain stopped by the South Perry Blog this morning. We are fast approaching the end of ‘Bike to Work Week’ and Chamberlain said the tournout has been solid. “We have about 1,300 people registered and it’s not too late to register,” said Chamberlain. She’s also hoping more bike commuters will join Bike to Work Spokane on Facebook as a way to stay connected with the bike community in Spokane. “We may change our format a bit next year to where we sign people up year round, not just this week.” One goal of the Bike to Work Spokane group is to get a good estimate of how many people acutally bike commute. Last year’s bike count didn’t quite work out, said Chamberlain, because it was really nasty rainy weather and it was only possible to count bikers in a few locations. “If we sign people up year round, we’d get a much better estimate of how many people ride there bikes to work,” Chamberlain said. And then she put on her helmet and rode off.

About this blog

Welcome to the South Perry neighborhood blog. My name is Pia Hallenberg and I’ve worked as a journalist in Spokane since the fall of 1998; for the last four years I’ve lived on South Perry Street.

I love the neighborhood so when time came to pick an area for The Spokesman-Review’s first neighborhood blog, the choice was simple: South Perry is where it’s at.
