The month of May is National Bike Month, and this week, May 16-20 is Bike to Work Week. Friday, May 20 is Bike to Work Day. Quite a few of you said you already ride your bikes to work as a way to lessen your carbon footprint. Good for you!
My husband rides his bike to work on a regular basis too. His ride is a little over 20 miles round trip each day, totaling over 100 miles in a typical work week. When he first started riding, I was nervous and concerned for his safety. Now a feeling of pride has replaced the fear I once had.
Sure he has come home late a few times, telling me about the stupidity and cruelness of some drivers. He’s been spit at, yelled at, and “tailgated” by drivers, all for riding a bike. But most of the time he tells me about how beautiful, exhilarating, and amazing his bike rides are.
Recently I sketched a few bikes for embroidery patterns. I’ve been working on getting them cleaned up, and I’m happy to share this one with you today.
