PHOTOS: Bike to Work Day in Lake City

Friday was Bike to Work Day. An estimated 20,000 people participated in the annual event aimed at getting commuters to get some exercise and get out of their cars. The Cascade Bicycle Club describes Bike to Work Day here:
F5 Bike to Work Day is a blast. Thousands of cyclists pack the streets. Smiles, waves and the friendly ring of bike bells fill the air. No matter what or where your commute, you won't be riding alone on Bike to Work Day.
This was also the first year that Lake City had its own Bike to Work Day station. The station was staffed by folks from Performance Bicycle and our own Kaffeeklatsch coffee shop and bakery, which provided cookies and coffee for commuters. The folks working the station counted about 80 riders commuting through Lake City during Bike to Work Day.

(Thanks to neighbor Justus Jessen for the photos. If you ever want to submit photos of events or happenings in the neighborhood send them along and we may publish them.)

  1. Thanks for the pictures! It looks like a nice group of folks staffing and that came through. It's really nice, though, to see the minipark in use for something like that!
