Friday Movie night was great fun: Good thing I donâ€™t live in New York City, ‘cuz IÂ graded my bike lock-up style, according toÂ Hal Grades Your Bike Locking, and my precious Raleigh commuter would be in grave jeopardy (D-) in NYC. In Flag a cable through the frame and rear wheel of my 30 year old 10-speed is probably a B+ and just fine.

Bike to work week demonstrates the tremendous potential Flagstaffâ€™s population has to make a difference by commuting by bicycle. We can make that difference count more by bike commuting more often. Letâ€™s keep the FUTS trails busy with cyclists and make every week Bike To Work Week.
THANKS! To the B2WW sponsors (Flagstaff Medical Center, Absolute Bikes, and AZ Bikes); to the many businesses that contributed raffle prizes, and most of all…
to ALL the People that ride their bikes, last week and every week, because all of those folks made Bike To Work Week a success!
