With another National Bike to Work Week upon us, we have once again worked on events to celebrate pedal-powered commuting at the Patagonia D.C. in Reno, Nevada. Every year we reward dedicated bikers and try to inspire more people to begin burning calories instead of fossil fuels. This year we are even more excited than usual because we now have on-site child care. While the children are, for the moment, too young to actively participate in Bike to Work Week, we look forward to including them in future years. In the meantime, we are stoked to be contributing to an environment that makes cycling the norm rather than the pastime of a few MAMILs (Middle-Aged Men in Lycra).
