What are your Bike To Work Week plans?

B2WW is coming up in just a few short weeks. How do you plan on dealing with it? Are you just going to bike to work as usual, or are you doing other stuff?

I'm going to try to promote it a bit. My company has a small team participating in this year's Commuter Challenge, a local contest that rallies individuals, cycling novices, and whole teams of people together to count their miles.

I also decided that if weather permits, in the name of independent transportation, I will attempt to go at least one day all the way to work and back via bike. If it works out, I'll do it as many days as I can handle it. Keep in mind that this month I'm closing in on my goal of 300 miles spread out over 4 weeks. Riding my entire commute by bike for a week would likely be between 200 and 300 miles in just one week.

What are your plans?

I had planned to organize and/or push bike to work week, but decided it would be a waste of time. I'll do my rides and just clod along.

The local bike club usually does a media event on Bike to Work day where a bunch of people drive to a parking lot and then ride their bikes three blocks for the TV cameras. I joined this ride once many years ago, but it was way too staged for me.

I'll ride to work as usual.

Well, for the time being I haven't been cyclecommunting. I have a major project at work so I can't haul off early to ride home. I'm hoping to ramp back up in a week or two. In the mean time I've been roadbike training in the park.
