Wednesday Bike to Work Week Update

Turnout for Bike to Work Week has been FANTASTIC so far. Most people have had no problem logging in their miles. We have heard from a few who forgot to enter past day’s commutes, and it with regret that FBO cannot enter those commutes after the fact. But remember! When more of us bike commute… we are ALL winners. Even if we don’t win a great Breezer bike (this year).
