From 2013 and beyond, I discuss bikes, bedlam, beer and beautiful adventures- plus the occasional rant.
I'm the New Belgium Brewing Company's 2011 Tour de Fat "Car for Bike" trader in San Diego, CA.
Bike to Work Day (B2WD) is this Friday, May 30. Friday morning, join me and THOUSANDS of San Diegans on bikes and get rewarded with tangible goodies when you stop by one of 97 pit stops around the county (From a FREE Bike to Work Day t-shirt, Free “fuel” with free snacks from local restaurants and B2WD sponsors, and plenty of high fives).
**Some of you work from home— no worries! Come out anyway! See how you can incorporate your workout into being a fun ‘commute for your health’ new ways to get around, new faces to meet, happy ways to do business by bike versus by car, and see new ways to get around (new 7-mile bike loop and other bikeways here).

Every trip counts. Did you know every bicycle trip you make helps SANDAG plan for the future? SANDAG and San Diego State University have partnered to manage the Bike Counter Network. Thirty-seven strategic locations in the San Diego region have bicycle and pedestrian counters that help SANDAG better understand the region’s patterns associated with walking and cycling. This data will support the development of improved measures of cycling and walking safety, health benefits of active travel, and traveler preferences for various facility types. Remember – every trip matters!
