Cyclists from Around County Bike to Work

Hundreds stop at cycling energizer stations around Marin and celebrate at the after-work party at Marin Country Mart.

Marin commuters celebrated Bike to Work Day on Thursday as hundreds of workers, students, and families hit the road on their bikes, stopping at Marin energizer stations around the county. The after-hours party at Marin Country Mart offered drinks, raffles, and food for bike commuters.

Great Bike commute on Bike to Work day. The positives? It is possible to bike commute from Novato to downtown Oakland (if you leave at 6:15am, ride to the 750am Larkspur Ferry, then take the 840am SF-Oak Ferry - and on the return, take the 440pm Oak - SF Ferry, and cycle from the Ferry Building along the Embarcadero to Crissy Field, up and over the GG Bridge, down to Sausalito and up cycling Route 5 to north Novato - 60 miles just to go to and from work (and a couple Ferry rides). And it was a spectacular weather day for cycling (even with those 30 kt winds at the Golden Gate!) Negatives - still too many cyclists without helmets and not stopping at stop signs - we still need to ride defensively - it is better to arrive safely then to not arrive at all.

Loved Bike to Work day! Most of the time I ride alone, so going to the after party gave me the opportunity to meet some other cyclists in Marin County. I logged 42 miles on my bike Thursday - doing errands, riding to work, and to the after party. I've lost 132 lbs combining the benefits of a weight loss program called Xyngular/Core 4 Ignite along with exercise and other healthy choices. I've fallen in love with cycling too - so you might see me anywhere on my bike. My heart's desire is to cycle cross country speaking about health and wellness, battling the war on obesity, and encouraging people that it is "never too late to change".
