May 15 自転車の日 Bike to Work Day [モノ goods]
May 15, 2008 (Thursday)
日本でもBicycle Ecology Japan (B.E.J) のようにBike to Work を推進しているところがあるようなんですが、ともかく今日はベイエリアはBike to Work Dayです。どうやら東のほうは明日16日がその日のようです。
Thursday, May 15, 2008, is the 14th annual Bike to Work Day!
On Thursday May 15, 2008, tens of thousands of residents from all corners of the Bay Area will put aside their car keys, don their helmets and bike to work. They will be seen on two wheels, big wheels, tandems and hybrids.
Ride your bike to work, to class, to errands or to play. Pedaling can take you there! Throughout the Bay Area, dozens of local events taking place during the month of May will get people excited about bicycling and the benefits it provides for public health, traffic reduction and our environment.
Join the thousands from all around the Bay Area on Thursday, May 15! Hop on your bike and bike to work! Stop by one of the over 190 Energizer Stations strategically located throughout the Bay Area where you will be greeted and cheered by volunteers handing out complimentary treats and tote bags and bicycle commute-related information.
In fact, the entire month of May is National Bike Month! If you bike even once during May, you’ll be eligible to win prizes. Just sign up to pledge your participation and your name will automatically be placed in a drawing to win a plethora of prizes including a brand new bicycle! Celebrate throughout the month by participating in fun-filled events such as the Team Bike Challenge, a friendly competition that challenges folks to ride for the entire month of May to earn points and win prizes! Nominate someone you know who epitomizes the spirit of Bike to Work Day 2008 for the Bike Commuter of the Year Award. Visit your local bike coalition or bicycle advocacy website for local events hosted in your community so you can join in on the fun and win prizes!
