Kick Off Bike Month Tonight!

When I walked in to the office this morning, I saw a site that warmed my heart: the bike rack was full. The recently installed rack outside the "front" door of the blue buidling had three bikes locked to it, two of them outfitted with extra seats for some kiddos. Don't worry, I just parked on the streetside rack, and we have plenty of room along the railings in front of both the Blue and Brick Buildings.

Yes, May is Bike Month, and I hope to be seeing more and more bikes on our racks as May progesses. To celebrate Bike Month, we're starting with a Kick-Off Potluck tonight (Wednesday, May 4) at 6pm in Community Hall in the Brick Building. All are welcome, whether you bike everyday, or you don't have a bike at all!

This month, we're also challenging neighbors to compete with us in the Group Health Commute Challenge, and we're inviting all of you to try bike commuting on Bike to Work Day on May 20, when you can stop by our commute station in Heart Of Phinney Park.

The PNA staff is also learning to walk the walk (and bike the bike, and ride the, er, bus). We're holding our very own Staff Commute Challenge that encourages walking, biking, riding transit and carpooling to work and meetings in the month of May. Join us!
