Bike To Work Day – Columbus

by Maureen McCabe on May 16, 2008

bike riderIt’s Bike to Work Day in Columbus …

and elsewhere.

 

Excuses, excuses, excuses…

 

I still don’t have a helmet.

 

It’s raining.

 

The route to my office includes going through the intersection of 270 and route 23.

 

Alternate route… High Street, to E. Wilson Bridge to Worthington Galena Rd.

 

All week I’ve been noticing that Worthington-Galena does not have a bike lane… and it is so narrow and the shoulder is not paved….

 

Last night coming home from the office, in the dark in the rain, in the car, seeing a biker make the turn from E. Wilson Bridge Rd. to north on Worthington – Galena Rd. scared me.

 

Enough excuses? No? One more… I don’t know the combination on my bike lock… I wonder where I wrote that down.

Bike To Work Week – Columbus

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 http://www.linkedin.com/in/jeffreylstevenson 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.

Jeff
