Chicago and the Active Transportation Alliance officially kicked off its bike to work week on Saturday, June 12, and will end with a Bike to Work Rally in Daley Plaza this Friday, June 18.

This morning I helped out at one of the many bike commuter stations – one that’s along my usual route – and greeted passing bike commuters with shouts of “Happy Bike to Work Week!” and “Join us for free coffee and goodies!”

A few cyclists stopped, some blew by in a hurry, others smiled back and waved (even if they didn’t stop) and others just grimaced. It’s those who were grimacing that gets me. Smile! You’re on a bike. :-)

Just in time for Bike to Work week, Chicago striped some new bikes in a few bike lanes and Active Trans is sharing the bike love with commuters by promoting this week’s bike commuter stations. Be on the lookout for one along or near your morning route.

From Chicago — Happy Bike to Work Week!
