A How-To Guide and Bike Events

~For people seeking tips on bike commuting~

My friend, Maria, of PoCampo put together a nifty guide for National Bike Month on how to bike to work safely and arrive looking presentable.

I recommend that you check it out and – most importantly! – forward it on to anyone who may be interested in bike commuting.  Spread the bike love!  :-)

~For Chicagoans looking for fun ways to connect with other bicyclists in the area~

This Thursday, in collaboration with local bike advocacy brewers Spiteful Brewing and local bike-coffee shop Heritage Bicycles, Chicago’s Ride of Silence (organized by my friend Elizabeth) is hosting a pre-Ride Tribute Event to raise awareness of the Ride of Silence and bike safety.  Come to Heritage Bikes on Thursday to chat and enjoy beer from 6-9 pm.   The Ride of Silence is on May 15 this year.

On Sunday, PoCampo is leading a leisurely Mother’s Day ride along the lakefront in Chicago.  I’ll be there!  The ride will start at 11 a.m. with mimosas & juice at Cricket Hill (Montrose & Lakefront) and continue south to the free Spring Flower Show at Lincoln Park Conservatory. Feel free to bring the whole family!

Hope to see some of you there!

    Great tips! I solved helmet hair the easy way – I don’t wear a helmet. If bike helmets provide no protection for impacts great enough to cause any damage beyond a scrap or lump on the head and millions of Dutch, Danish, Swedes, and others all seem to live just fine without them, I’m not sure of their purpose. Well, other than to cause sweat and helmet hair.

      I find my hair actually looks better if I wear the helmet, it goes everywhere otherwise.

      You’re right about the Dutch etc. However the Spanish are thinking of bringing in a law to make helmets compulsory, it’s been tried before and it’s a rubbish idea :-(
