Biking it...

I wanted to express my appreciation to many local vendors supporting Bike to Work Week, and the T-I for prominently disseminating information on the many Bike to Work Week activities around this bicycle friendly community.

Following the information provided in the article, I personally took advantage of two of our local vendors’ offers for a free cup of coffee and took further advantage of their superlative service: got a new helmet to replace my aging relic one day and on another gorgeous morning for biking I enjoyed a fresh cup of coffee so much I decided to enjoy a bagel, as well.

I chose many years ago to work only in communities in which I can bicycle or walk to work. I have been bicycle commuting infrequent-rain-or-shine, seven-days-a-week in Moab since 2004. I thoroughly enjoy my Moab bicycle commute, and am hoping to see more bikers enjoying the commute in this gorgeous, bicycle-friendly environment in the coming years!
