I regret that I cannot participate in Bike to Work Day, in that I work at home and don’t own a bike. If it were not for those two minor complications, I would absolutely bike to work today. The City of San Diego is aggressively adding new bike routes and bike paths, and indeed plans are afoot to turn the street I live on into a bike boulevard. Despite being a non-bike-owner myself, I couldn’t be more pleased at all the efforts to reduce motorized vehicular traffic and give cyclists better and safer opportunities to get from place to place. If you have a bike, a place of work that is not home, and a reasonable distance to commute, I hope you’ll consider biking to work today (and as often as you can).
