Reporting from “Roll with the Mayor” Bike-to-Work Day 2014

This morning’s “Roll with the Mayor” Bike-to-Work Day celebration was one of the best yet. If your picture isn’t here, it just may be on the collection of almost 100 snapshots on the Facebook page. Go take a look.

Mayor Curtis and the Provo City Police Department led the way on an upbeat ride around downtown.

There were bicycles and riders of all kinds…commuter cyclists, kids on their way to school, parents with babies in trailers, college students.

So many organizations came out to help celebrate. Mad Dog Cycles brought out their team to provide free tuneups, Einsteins bagels and Jamba Juice served up breakfast goodies, UTA and UDOT provided free helmets and bike law guides. Mad Dog and the Bike Collective ran a raffle for a pretty rad bike. And, of course, we had a BikeProvo.org table.

Thanks to Mad Dog and all of the other organizations that generously donated their time. And, thanks to our police force (especially the Bike Committee’s favorite officer, Sergeant Crosby) for their efforts to make our streets safer for all modes of transportation.
