National Ride To Work day

Ride To Work, Inc.

Those of you who know me, know 2 things:

I walk to work, with my dog and the neighbors dog everyday.

I ride my motorcycle (1996 BMW R1100RS), scooter (1985 Yamaha Riva 125) or bicycle (A Kurt Buddendeck customized Raleigh mountain bike) almost everywhere I go. The car (1995 Lexus ES 300) hardly leaves the garage except to go to Sams Club (If Iams Chunks was the same price in 10lb bags as it is in 48lb bags this could be avoided) or taking friends to the Airport.

For those of you who commute long distances- it may start being practical to consider moving closer to your work. If you work downtown, at Miami Valley Hospital, NCR or UD, I highly recommend the South Park Historic District. I also highly recommend a scooter- and you can check out Scooter Source for an affordable ride.

Just think- my scooter gets almost 85mpg. How much money could you save?

It would also be a great day for the Dayton City Commission to start working on alternative parking solutions for 2 wheel and hybrid vehicles.

What do you think?
