Bike to Work Week

When the spirits are low, when the day appears dark, when work becomes monotonous, when hope hardly seems worth having, just mount a bicycle and go out for a spin down the road, without thought on anything but the ride you are taking.  Sir Arthur Conan Doyle

The month of May is National Bike Month and the League of American Bicyclists is promoting Bike to Work Week from May 15-19th, with the 19th being the official Bike to Work Day.  If you live and work in an area where it is feasible to bike to work then why not join others in biking to work this week.  If I had to go to work then I would love to ride my bike especially since I just had it tuned up last week.  The Gunflint Trail itself isn’t an ideal place to ride bike but there are some great side roads, ski trails, and USFS Roads that offer wonderful riding.  Biking to work this week is not only good for the environment but also good exercise for you.  For a neat story about a biking canoe trip go to this website.
