Why I Ride My Bike to Work?

May is national bike month and this week (May 13-19) is bike to work week and May 17 is bike to work day.  This year, I started riding my bike on May 1st and been doing it whenever I  possible  can. I'm a fair weather rider. I don't like riding my bike in the rain and especially not while it's snowing. Someone at work asked me why I ride my bike to work? what's the reason? is it for fitness? or did you get a DUI? Oh heck no, I did not get a DUI, and probably will never get one.  I'm riding my bike to work because I love riding it and also I get my workout done at the same time. It's only a 10 mile round trip ride but it's a good enough distance to get my workout in for the day. My first day of riding my bike to work - May 1st, 2019 On my way to work Can you spot the sign?
