And I drove to work =[
I didn't sleep well last night, and my alergies are presently kicking my ass.
..and now that I'm here at my desk, I still feel like total garbage.
I'd probably be feeling good right now if I had worked up the motivation to ride in.
Whats even worse is that I started browsing Craigslist when I got here, and saw this:
I'm 1/1 for commuting so far, nice rainy day to start out on. Rain can make for a blissful ride, methinks.

Heh. I dont need no stinking bike month to ride to work :P I think last month was our bike monthor bike week. I didnt 'see alot of people biking. Go figure in a town that is considered to be The car/suv town of the usa and maybe even world.

You took your car? Thats ok. You didn't miss anything. Bike week or month is meaningless. The only people who give a sheit are the city/provincial, whatever, employees who are paid to post the sighs etc. The rest of us are oblivious to what ever thay are doing weather we ride a bike or take a car. Not that there is anything wrong with not giving a shiet. This month will be the same as any other month. You can count on that.

Well, for me it will be the same as any other month, except hopefully a little drier.
There are metric tonnes of bike culture activies going on this month.
In all the years I've been commuting I've never seen any of the bike month events that I've heard of, they all seem to assume all bike commuting happens in the downtown core, a place I've never commuted to. I'm 3 for 3 on the month, but that's nothing special, I've only missed 5 days this year.

silly steev. they assume all of life happens in the downtown core. and having seen richmond, i kind of feel like i almost have to agree with them.
but ooo, there's URL="http://calendar.best.bc.ca/view_entry.php?id=207&date=20060610"]this[/URL], and even more importantly this (http://calendar.best.bc.ca/view_entry.php?id=488&date=20060621). i may have to not-work that day :D

Now that i'm 45 i'll skip the naked bike ride though :)
