Come to The Bicycle Escape Friday, May 12th from 5:00-8:00pm for our Annual Bike to Work Day Pre-registration Party.
Have you seen the cool bike taxis rolling around downtown Frederick lately? They are so cool. Geo and I took our first ride in one last week and it was fun!
A big congratulations to Tonya! She is the proud winner of the Breezer Greenway we donated to promote Bike to Work Day at the Frederick Pit Stop.
We have a winner! John Thomas, Frederick County’s Principal Planner and known bicycle enthusiast, won the Bike to Work grand prize, a Breezer i3 folding bike.
Bike to Work Day is THIS Friday. Soooooo SIGN UP, SIGN UP, SIGN UP! Lets show everyone how committed Frederick is to alternative transportation.
We just received our first shipment of electric assist bicycles from Giant. The Giant Freedom Twist DX is unlike other electric bikes I have come in contact with over the years. The Freedom employs what Giant calls Hybrid Technology.
There is a goal to make September 22, 2008 a car free day. If at all possible please help with this goal. Ride your bike, telecommute, car pool, take a day off, quit your job, etc. What ever it takes.
The Frederick Bike to Work Pit stop was a great success in spite of the rain. Around 50 cyclists, young and old, gathered at the Frederick MARC station this morning for light fare and bike chit-chat.
Welcome to Bike Month everybody!!! This morning I was greeted with perfect temperatures and a cool breeze as I cycled to work. I want to encourage everyone to enjoy the same pleasure. This month is packed with fun stuff!
Today we held our second bike commuter clinic. Basic bike commuter tips were covered as well as winter commuting tips. Once again John Gorham (Single Speed Outlaw team member) headed up the discussion.
As some of you may know Danielle and I recently relocated to a home closer to the shop. Part of the reason we moved was to make it easy to cycle to the shop.
Well folks the winner has presented herself! Today a very excited Jennifer Eberhardt of Frederick came in to pick up the Breezer Zag8 folding bike that we raffled off to promote Bike to Work Day.
Danielle, Roger and I had a lot of fun at this past Friday’s bike to work celebration. The event attracted riders both young and old atop all sorts of bicycles. We were offering free coffee and bagels to warm up the slightly chilly riders.
It is always fun for me to talk about bicycle commuting. The benefits are many and I would encourage everyone to use a bike as basic transportation at least once. We kicked off bike month with a commuter clinic.
