I spoke to our good friend Tim Rutledge, Performance Bicycle Marketing Manager of Seattle Bike Supply (Redline) and asked him about the folks that are bike commuters in the company. So he gave me a break down on the info, here’s what he had to say:

With May Bike to Work month, and Bike to Work Day both the 17th—for the commuter cup, and the 18th for the official city of Seattle bike to work day we are really focusing on riding to work this whole month. Our historic Bike to Work Day numbers are as follows:

2001=28 employees

2002=22 employees

2003=33employees

2004=30employees

2005=42employees 72% participation, winner of the Specialized Commuter Cup for our size.

2006=41employees

Overall SBS has plenty of daily commuter’s verses just “Bike to Work Day.? On average 10 people ride to work everyday.

Of course this is really challenging when you have a month like this past November where we had 13 inches of rain in one month. I would say even though it is more challenging to ride here in the Pacific Northwest due to the weather, the weather is at least moderate enough to make it possible to ride.

Inside joke living in the Seattle area—“Don’t take your fenders off your training bike until July 5th—cause it always seems to rain on the 4th.?

We’d like to say thanks to Tim as well as the rest of the SBS crew for being great examples of what a Bike Commuter is.
