On Friday, May 15, BikeTexas staff set off for work in the wee, dark hours. It’s not so bad leaving for work at 5:30 when you can ride there with almost no traffic! Our office was a Bike to Work Day Breakfast Station, and we had to start cranking out breakfast tacos and coffee for the hungry and thirsty commuting cyclists who would start showing up at 7:00 am.
In ones, twos and threes, people starting rolling up. Everyone had a great time talking and comparing commutes. Some of the cyclists were making the rounds of every Breakfast Station that they could, and though our tacos may not have compared to the offerings of a bike shop that provided catering by culinary students, no one left our office hungry.
Turnout was great – we had about 45 cyclists stopping in, even more than last year. Thanks to all you members and commuters who stopped in to BikeTexas on Bike to Work Day, Friday May 15!
