I’m on the bike this week and I hope you will be, too.

This is the first annual Bike to Work Week in Columbus.

The organizing group has a great website that explains the how small shifts in individual behavior yield great communal benefits — and how to do it. There are contests for competition among employers and corporate teams. Events and education on law, geography, and bicycle repair.

It’s such a great enterprise. I tip my bike helmet to the organizers.

I’ll be peddling quietly in support.
I think it’s going to be neat to watch and participate.

I’m going to take the bus with my bike in the morning, so I can go to the wrong side of town and pick up a peloton of friends coming from the north.

Hundreds of enthusiasts will meet on the State House Lawn at 7:30 a.m. for breakfast with Mayor Coleman and a kickoff of Bike to Work Week.

See you there. It should be rainy so wear your trash bag.

Unless pride prevents.
