Bike Month In Florida

Ok, so today is the 12th of March and this my first mention that it is Bike Month in Florida. Why? I don't care. Really, I don't. The rest of country has recognized May as the official bike month for sometime. But here in Florida we must do Bike Month in March because it gets "too hot in May".

Are you kidding me? Too hot in May? It's Florida it's supposed to be hot. That is why we live here!

And the real reason I failed to mention anything about Bike Month earlier is I didn't have anything to report in the way of happenings for the month. That was until I went thought my gmail spam folder found all the bike month emails neatly tucked away. My apologies for taking so long to post.

Anyway, in celebration of Florida's Bike Month. Here's the obligatory proclamation from our fine governor who by the way, requested zero dollars for cycling, pedestrian or rail infrastructure in the recent stimulus package. Click on the image for full view.

One good thing happening this weekend the 14th and the next on the 21st. is a Bike To Work Workshop sponsored by North Florida TPO.
