Are you ready? Is your bike ready?
Is your chain lubed? Tires pumped up and holding air?
Do the brakes work?
Spring is here and it's time to take the pledge.
Sign up NOW to ride your bike every day during the month of April.
Do it for fitness, for socializing, for fun.
Any distance, any destination.
Even a trip to the end of the street and back counts.
Make sure some of your rides are shared with friends and family.
(In one of the nicest surprises of the season, my sister has signed up and will take her first ride on her new bike with me!)
And if you want to make a difference for others, consider signing up to raise money for World Bicycle Relief, which educates and empowers youth in developing countries by bringing them bicycles, tools and repair skills.
Several bicycle industry companies are offering matching funds for every dollar that riders raise.
Make your own spoke card and tell folks who see it about #30daysofbiking. Invite them on a ride.
The number one reason most of us ride bicycles is because it;s a fun way to get from place to place.
Go somewhere cool? Share your bike rides at the Joyful Riders Worldwide group on Facebook. (You can also use the group to organize rides with folks near you.)
There's still time to sign up.
See you on the streets!
