Eau Claireâ€™s first Bike To Work Week has started off strong! And I am getting stronger using my bike and an improvised trailer hauling our Bike Fed tent and other gear to all the events.
Less than 2 weeks after an historic 9.3″ snowfall, Eau Claire was rewarded with bright sunshine and high temps for our Bike to Work Week kick-off event at Volume One World Headquarters. People on bikes both young (9) and old (72) stopped by our commuter station, asking questions about local projects and offering insightful suggestions to help move Eau Claire cycling forward. I am really proud of our community, what weâ€™ve done and where weâ€™re going.
Bike to Work Week is a time to celebrate successes with your fellow pedal pushing neighbors, to tell inspirational stories among co-workers and encourage friends or family to give that old bicycle another try. Many local businesses, groups and organizations came together to offer free coffee, snacks, bicycle repair and chances to win some great raffle prizes.
If youâ€™re in Eau Claire, I look forward to meeting you at the next commuter station or our Bike to Work Week Closing Celebration at Lazy Monk BreweryÂ this Friday!
