Team spirit- Carson City Orthodontics – It’s been a wet and wild week! I rode at lunch yesterday and got hammered by rain- came to work soaked to the bone but smiling! Today we woke to hail and rode through rain then treated ourselves to hot tea and coffee. One war wound so far, and we are all feeling great from getting out and moving! Enjoying new bike paths and street crossings along 395 helping us get safely to our office this year.

More Rider Comments

“I broke my left pedal on yesterdays ride. I will blame uphill pedal torque and the wind. That’s my story and I’m stickin’ to it! :-)” – OTR

“I used to ride regularly, but haven’t ridden my bike to work for 8 or 9 years!!! Since then I have thought about bike commuting, as it is a great use of my time especially with a couple of young kids, but never got my act together to do it. That is until now, and I couldn’t be more stoked! What a great way to be outside! Hope you are having a great day! Cheers.” – DCNR EcoCyclists

“Runnin’ reds and killin’ peds” – Premium Rush (2012) – DETR – Psychopaths

“How can there be a headwind in every direction that you turn?” – Allison MacKenzie

“Ready for some sunny weather🌞” – Redrock Dental Molarcyclers

“Oh the deep joy of a brisk morning ride to the south of town, as the sun rises on Freel Peak! (oh, and no traffic!)” – RCI Rowdies

“Half our team met at Schat’s and rode 4 miles to and from the office today then we all rode out to lunch. It was the first time some of them have ridden a bike that far in years and we laughed the whole time. Fun!” – Carson City Orthodontics

“My feet hurt” – USPS Goatheads

Corporate Challenge Wednesday

IMG_0490

A couple Goatheads on their way to the office

The weather wasn’t too bad yesterday. At least it didn’t snow.  Below you’ll find the current Corporate Challenge results as of 7am Wednesday morning.  Not all results are in so the numbers may change quite a bit.

Commuter Comments:

LOVE the rain!! – RCI Rowdies

Dude! Where’s my car? –DETR Cyclepaths

Fun week no matter the weather! – Allison MacKenzie

Half our team met at Schat’s and rode 4 miles to and from the office today then we all rode out to lunch. It was the first time some of them have ridden a bike that far in years and we laughed the whole time. Fun! – Carson City Orthodontics 

 

On the Bike to Work Week Schedule tonight:

Ride of Silence

Wed, May 17th 7:00 pm
Telegraph Square

Cyclists will take to the roads in a silent procession to honor cyclists who have been killed or injured while cycling on public roadways. Cyclists have a legal right to share the road with motorists, but the motoring public often isn’t aware of these rights, and sometimes not aware of the cyclists themselves. http://www.rideofsilence.org

Ride of Silence route: https://www.strava.com/routes/8726350

The results are combined.  An * indicates Private Business category

Looks like a tight competition with the NDOT Road Worriers (Okay, I made that name up but I think it’s pretty funny) and the Spoke Patrol.  Don’t count out the Rough Riders. They typically rally near the end of the week.
