Jacksonville Bike To Work Day Pictures

My apologies for the delay in getting these posted. The Jacksonville Film Festival has been Keeping me pretty busy. And to tell you the truth, I was pretty disappointed with the turn out for Bike To Work. I do want to thank Councilman Don Redman, Mayor Payton, Laura Hallam of Florida Bicycle Association and the members of The North Florida Bike Club for their attendance and support.

Picture album.

Hi. Please join the Bicycle to Work! LinkedIn networking group. Members pledge that they will try to ride their bicycle to work or on an errand at least once a week. Although the benefits should be obvious, let me outline them here.

Right now people in the industrialized world are facing two very grave problems: obesity and a growing scarcity of oil. Compounding this problem is the new food shortage brought about, in part, by the conversion of food cropland to bio-fuel crop production. Most people feel powerless to help, but there is one thing that we can do. Ride our bicycles to work.

If everyone would agree to ride their bikes to work one day per week we could cut oil consumption by as much as 10-15%. No one would argue that riding a bike burns more calories than driving the car. Although popular politically right now, most bio-fuels consume more energy than they produce. We would be much better to eat those bio-crops then use our own energy to transport us around.

So spread the word. Make it a movement! Bicycle to work one day a week and do your part to cut back obesity and the overuse of oil and precious cropland.

Just go to my profile at and you can click on the group to be included. While you are there, don't forget to ask to link to my network of more than 9,000,000 like-minded professionals. I accept all invitations and look forward to meeting you.

I just discovered your site today and am glad I did. I've been wondering for the past month if Jacksonville was doing, or had done anything, with regards to National Bike Month or Bike To Work Day. I'm glad something was done but I must confess that I didn't hear a thing about it. Was there any form of marketing, or advertisement, done to get the word out? Honestly, I was under the impression that nothing had been planned or accomplished.
