We had quite a successful Bike to Work and School week this year. Participation was up by 60 percent! Plus there were 169 new riders reported! We tried a bike maintenance night open to all ages, which we may try again next year in better weather. The First Credit Union pancake breakfast was a hit, as usual, with over forty riders in attendance. Pizza and prizes at the bike park was fun and the kids there helped with the final draw prizes for the schools and from the Celebration station and event entries throughout the week.
