Bike Month for 2011 is in May and the Official Ride a Bike to Work day is Friday, May 20th, 2011. Unfortunately, this is extremely unpractical for most employees who commute what I would consider an extreme distance that is unrealistic for riding a bike, to work. An unofficial ratio of office staff to production staff is about 3/7. That means that 30% of your employees, the ones that actually greet and meet the customer, would be a little on the rank or smelly side after riding an average of 18 miles to work, one way.
Danville Bike and Footwear for a modest investment. I decided that it was time for a new riding helmet, since my old helmet had met it's demise a few years ago, and they provided that as well. I know, I probably paid more to have the work done instead of doing it myself, but I look at it this way. I have been completing all my own maintenance for the last five years and it was time to have someone else check my work. I like to send my cars and trucks as well as my bicycles and animals to another health care provider periodically to just to be sure I haven't missed anything. This is kind of a "check the checker" deal that helps maintain all my stuff. It works pretty good, especially since I am not afraid to work on my stuff, even if I don't know what I'm doing, and I want the experts to tell me if'n I screwed something up. As in this case, I needed to modify the setup but didn't know exactly what needed to be changed.
I probably won't be riding to work anytime soon since I am someone that perspires a lot when I exercise. Some people glisten, I sweat like a pig. Therefore, even if I wanted to ride to work, my co-workers would probably bar the door to prevent me from getting too close once I arrived.
Thanks for stopping by. Let's get out there and make it a great day!
