Day 1: Bigsby Creek Road on a fine spring morning

#30daysofbiking Day 1: Bigsby Creek Road on a fine spring morning

April 1 … Today begins the Twitter-launched virtual riding odyssey called #30daysofbiking.  As outlined so perfectly by the “founder(s)”, the official mission statement reads:

We ride our bikes. Every. Friggin. Day.

How does it work?  Simple: get out there and ride a bike.  Somewhere.  Anywhere.  Ride around the block.  Ride to work.  Ride to the store.  Ride with your kids.  Ride with your partner.  Ride by yourself.  Just ride … every day, 30 days, for the month of April.  You will be so glad you did! 😀

Please take a minute to visit the great site ( set up for this project by its twitter founders (@patiomensch, @rycera & @nicycle – hoping I got this right?).  In the meantime, here’s a summary (from the site) of the project’s “How to Participate” steps.  Simple, really …

Step 1: Make the pledge.  Get on twitter and tweet @patiomensch of your plans to participate in #30daysofbiking.

Step 2: Ride your bike.  Somewhere. Anywhere.  If you’re riding, you’re participating.

Step 3: Tweet about your ride, including the hashtag #30daysofbiking.  Share your experience, join the conversation.

Step 4: Repeat steps 1 & 2 each day through the month of April.

The only “rules” are that you ride your bike every day for 30 days, and tweet about your adventures …

I have said this before, but I have “met” some of the finest, funniest, most amazing cyclists in the virtual Twitterverse … and I absolutely love that this project was hatched there.  Mostly, it’s an amazing thing to be riding “with” all of my twitter cycling pals – even though we reside in different cities around the globe.  How great is that?

So – today’s ride was a quick morning road ride … Glorious spring morning, sun shining, trees blooming, perfect cycling weather.  A great start to #30daysofbiking … and it’s just the beginning!
