This won’t be a long post because I simply don’t have time. May is a busy month for work, personal events and let’s not forget cycling. The biggest thing is the re-launch of this, the Bike Friendly Plano blog. Keeping people who cycle in Plano informed since 8:20 this morning. The idea is that you will wake up every Friday and Monday with something fresh and enlightening regarding the world beneath your pedals in Plano.
There is a lot going on this month:
Well here is the first thing: GO VOTE! – there is a General and Special Election that will make a difference to you both in terms of leadership and infrastructure. Pay attention who will be running our city because it will make a difference to your future as a someone who rides a bike. The bond elections are also important to improve our infrastructure and while I am in favor of all of these propositions, the improvement of our parks and trails is singularly important.
There are a great number of opportunities to ride your bike in groups, if that is your thing. I admit, I do like like group riding and here are some events that you may want to investigate:
MS150 – May 4-5
PBA Spring Century – May 11th
Ride of Silence – May 15th
Ride to Work Day – May 17th
Wild Ride – May 18th
The National Bike Challenge kicks off this month and runs through August. It’s a great way to track your miles, let others know that we Americans ride our bikes — a lot and set some goals.
I’ll update this later with Hyperlinks and such but for now, I have to run to go help with MS150 setup. There’s no time like the present to get out and ride your bike! It’s a beautiful day, seriously, go ride your bike!
