Bike to Work Day for many California cities is on Thursday, May 12, 2011.

Children’s book illustrator Karl Edwards created “Insecticycle” — a a bike that tells a story.

There’s now a website dedicated to showing all of those YouTube helmet cam bike commute videos at Share The Path. Via EcoVelo. Problem with the site: They expect you to accept their “Terms and Conditions” without actually publishing them, and their “contact” email bounces. Who knows what they’ll do with your email address, so I’d avoid registering with them for now.

This is one of my more popular bike videos (40 seconds):

    I saw Share the Path on Eco Velo and posted with no problem. Check it out this was yesterday. By the way I did not have a point of view and it was accepted. see domotion2011 Lake Harriet Note with social networking we acknowledge some risk. Craigslist comes to mind as a site to avoid. Nice blog first time visit.
