We have almost reached our Bike to Work Month membership drive goals but we need your help! Bike to Work Week 2009 was a spectacular success.. With 1250 folks pedalling over 28,000 miles, we kept 15.4 metric tons of carbon from the air and burned over 260 pounds of human kibble. And we felt great! But Flagstaff Biking’s Bike to Work Week, youth & adult education and riding programs, and trail work need an active
