I will freely and openly admit that 10 or so years ago, something like the #30DaysofBiking initiative would’ve never appealed to me. It would’ve been just another hippy-bike thing that had nothing to do with my EXTREMELY narrow-minded view of what cycling was. I guarantee I would’ve made fun of it because I certainly made fun of similar things just like it back in the day. Why the change? Well I’m guessing part of it is that I’ve grown up just a little. The other part is I’m not as much of an asshole as I used to be, which is probably due in no small part to me growing up.
So back here in September of good ‘ol 2010, I’ve latched onto a movement a couple of lads from Minnesota have created. 30 Days of Biking is a dead simple way to get people on their bikes. It can be a century, a commute to work, a trip to the store, or a spin in your parking lot, just so long as you get on your bike and Tweet about it. If you want to see what everyone else is doing for their 30 days, search the term #30DaysofBiking and join in the conversation. For those digitally documenting their rides, I’ve created a Flickr group to upload your images to.
Are you participating in the #30DaysofBiking? Let me hear it!
