Earth Day Ride a big success!


Intercity Transit General Manager Mike Harbour addresses the throng at the fountain

Despite the threatening weather (which later followed through on the threat!), 75 intrepid practical cyclists turned out for the 5th Annual Earth Day Market Ride! Many thanks to all the volunteer leaders, and to everyone who came out and rode this year. At our booth at the Farmers Market, 54 riders registered for the Bicycle Commuter Contest. Hopefully everyone got home before the skies opened at around 2:30. I saw that cloud coming and got our canopy down and put away in a hurry! Stay tuned for updates on upcoming events, like the Wrencher's Ball.
If you haven't registered yet for the BCC, make sure to do it before May 1.
