Bike to Work Day

    
     With May being national bike month today is officially "Bike to Work Day."  From 7-9 am today at the Columbia Mall you can get on-the go snacks and extra t-shirts or goodies! L.L Bean at the Mall is hosting a L.L. Bean tent at The Mall in Columbia for Bike to Work Day 2012.  Our staff will deliver clinics on basic bike road repair and basic bike maintenance. See demonstrations featuring bikes from days ago, and be sure to register for various raffle prizes and swag at www.bike2workcentralmd.com

     Yesterday at Cradlerock School in Columbia it was bike to school day where a large number of children biked to school.  Many were accompanied by their parents. 
    Our community still has a long way to go to become more bike friendly on our roads.  Bikes have never been considered in the design of any of our County roadways.  I did a blog earlier this year to show how some communities have made their streets more bike friendly.

P.S.
How times change with different housing goals in Columbia.  These two stories show the change.  Harper House and Town Center development.
