Send anyone who is interested in how to commute in traffic to a workshop Wes and I are conducting Saturday, 11am, Farm Market near the ice skating rink at MacArthur.
I admit that I have not commuted to work in years. I live a mile from the job, so gearing up bike and clothing for such a short ride that will not give me a workout is not appealing. Plus, I carry books and would need to change clothes. . . dang, I am making excuses! I can at least commute on dress down Fridays. I am suddenly motivated to ride to work tomorrow.
I did not have a car for a few years in my early 20's. I biked to work and to TCC as I worked on a 2 year degree that took me 4 years to complete. I remember best the cold, but secondly the pride of self-sufficiency and accomplishment.
I am not expecting a great turnout since the workshop is not listed on Fair Trade Festival's calendar. We have tried to advertise with flyers. Both Wes and I have a vision of a more dynamic cycling population in Norfolk. This is the beginning of more workshops and strategies for riding in town.
ALSO, Critical Mass Norfolk is this Friday, Nov 30.
