This month bicycle commuters across the nation will be leaving their cars at home, clicking on bike helmets and smiling as they pass by gas stations during Bike to Work Week, May 16-20. Here in Michiana, Memorial Health System is promoting the event with raffle prizes for employees who bike in.
I commute by bicycle around South Bend every day, year round. To work, to church, to Martin’s Super Market, to the library. To Lula’s coffee house. To grade school, with my two girls and their friends weaving behind in a train of smiles. I ride when it rains. I ride when it’s cold.
