Bike to Work Day

Today was the second annual Bike to Work Day sponsored by the Center City Commission.

We were among the many organizations present at the expo today in front of City Hall. While MLGW did not place among the companies with the highest number of employees on bikes, we were pleased to hear that there were over twice as many participants this year as there were last year. This year's big winner was St. Jude, which had 38 employees who rode to work today. I was lucky enough to run into three of them in Overton park this morning. I rode all the way to St. Jude with them and it made the commute much more relaxing. Being in a group of four definitely felt safer than being alone.

If you missed the expo, then you missed chatting with some great organizations like MLGW, the Health Department, the Sierra Club, and the Greater Memphis Greenline. You also missed out on the opportunity to make your own smoothie in a bike-operated blender at the Live from Memphis booth!

Don't worry, there's always next year! And, just so you know, every day can be bike to work day if you let it!
