Commuter Challenge Week is May 12 to 16

(My college system froze our wages for this upcoming year and they charge $360 a year for me to park in order to work for them. So I don't drive to work anyways, but for those of you that do, here is a challenge... Courtesy of Zep Valdis.)

Commuter Challenge Week is May 12 to 16

Challenge your friends, families, and co-workers to ride a bike instead of driving to work and for running other errands. Every car trip you replace earns you an extra chance to win a commuter bike to be raffled at Bike Lexington Event on May 17. Down oad the commute log here Bike Commuter Challenge

Hi,

I did not find a more suitable way to get in touch with you (did not see an email address on your blog). I'd like to thank you for checking out my music that Ariel sent to you. Also, your blog is interesting, I like :)

Love,
Lena

Hi Lena,

I like your manifesto... you have a great writing style and like how you just state what you feel (probably because we are both Libras).

Good luck with the new release and the Knitting Factory premiere!
