Today was Bike to Work Day in Austin, as well as in many other cities. Fueling stations were set up around town, including one in front of city hall. Mayor Steve Adler spoke briefly about the reasons to bike to work: it’s healthy, cheap, fun, and earth-friendly. Based on recent trips to Amsterdam and Copenhagen, he is convinced that our city should be doing more to promote bikes as an alternative for commuting.
Let’s see…what would you need if you were going to bike to work?
A place to park the bike.
A bike map.
A mayoral riding buddy.
