Bike to Work Day, Petitions and Breakfast for a 50+'r
Today was "Bike to Work Day" in the Denver area, sponsored by the Denver Regional Council of Governments (DRCOG).
There were 100 kiosks set up all over the bicycle trail system throughout the area. Each had bagels, spreads, coffee, free t-shirts, novelties, etc., and a bike adjustment station. About 25,000 bicycle riders participated.
My wife and I are very involved in gathering formal petition signatures for the upcoming November election to get a ballot initiative to end the 12,000 person Colorado wait list for individuals with developmental disabilities. We need 76,400 signatures.
So, we bicycled to the kiosk near us and collected lots and lots of bcyclists signatures - they are a real quality group of folks.
Afterwards, we went on a short ride, and biked to the bank to have the signed petitions notarized (required by state law).
Then, as it WAS "bike to work day" but I am retired, I bicycled to a meeting I attend regarding ending the wait list. It was 18 miles one way.
Since my wife had a dental appointment nearby after my meeting, I met her and we drove home, bike in the van.
Anyway, a really fun day for this 50+'r.
