I would just like to remind everyone that tomorrow is National Bike to Work Day. For all of you out there that haven’t tried biking somewhere in a while this is a perfect time to start. I am on vacation at the moment but I still have not forgotten that it is Friday. Here in DC the local bike Bike and Roll Rental Shop will allow you to rent a bicycle for free all day on Friday if you live in the DC and will use it to commute. I don’t know what they are doing back in Texas but anyone that hasn’t ridden since they were a little kid needs to give it a shot. It is a great way to get into shape and save some money on that daily commute.
If you are needing a bike, Craigslist is probably the best way to get one for cheap, especially right around when students are moving out. If you are curious about what a good brand is or if a certain one will fit you, feel free to contact me or comment this post.
The Bryan/College Station area is a great place to bike as many road in College Station have dedicated bike lanes or sidewalks. Bryan is less formal about bikes on the road, however I’ve found all kinds of ways between towns on the bike. My suggestion is to just give it a try, it isn’t for everyone, but it sure does make you feel like you have accomplished something and the end of the day.
