Bike To Work Day
May 16th

Bike To Work Day was a huge success! Over 100 bike commuters came out to ride to work on a cloudless, sunny Friday, passing by at least one of the Bike Commuter Stations set up for the morning. Many again turned up for the afternoon happy hour at the Alaskan Brewery Depot.
