Bisbee reminds us that May is National Bike To Work Month. Here in the Bay Area of California, people have taken up bicycling motivated more, perhaps, by rising gasoline prices than recognition of a special month. Last night, in fact, I could not get on the train because the bike car was completely full! (Caltrain has a car designated and configured specifically for cyclists and their bikes).

Part of it is that we're weather wusses: when it rains we don't bike; when it's sunny, the bikes come out of storage. It was unusually rainy this year, but it's looking great now. The weekends rides are packed with fellow riders.
