Editor’s note: I saw this posted onto Engage WPB. I have participated in several Bike-to-Work days over the past few years and have a ton of pictures from these great events. So I dropped in the pictures and am posting them here.
Thanks to the City for putting on this event and for Brian Ruscher for posting it on Engage. For more information please view the facebook group.
Even if you don’t bike normally, think of this week as a way to challenge yourself to bike once you’re in the city or around your neighborhood. Need a bike? One of the many great bike shops or SkyBike probably has a solution for you or in the area probably can fix you up!

This is Aaron again: And finally here’s a pic of the biggest bike to work practitioner, Executive Director of the Downtown Development Authority, Raphael Clemente. Raphael bikes to work most days, but this is a picture of him biking home from work on Bike to Work Day 2014.
Full disclosure: I took this picture from my car window as I drove past… nobody’s perfect.
