More images from commuter stations

I’ve added a few more images to the “Bike 2 Work Week” gallery. I plan on adding news ones each day. The newest ones will be first and today’s images came from Xoom juice downtown, Cereal Boxx and the Sunflower Market on First Avenue and Limberlost.

TucsonVelo reader commented yesterday that there was a lack of signage at the commuter stations he rode by.

I rode past the supposed stations at Scoot Over and the Lung Association on Broadway this morning – nothing – neither one could be bothered to even tape up a paper sign outside. So if they’re trying to keep it a big secret what’s the difference between this week and any other week?

I pretended to be one of the many thousands of people who *didn’t* know about these locations in advance and just rode on by like everyone else.

Some businesses have large signs like the one in the image to the left. Jennifer Donofrio said they had enough money to purchase six of the large signs and were relaying on the businesses to help promote the events.

She said she realized it was something they could improve on next year.

Something else I was curious about - as I mentioned earlier on TBL, reading through the calendar of commuter stations and associated goodies, nearly all of them required that you show your bike helmet to be allowed to participate. How rigidly is this being enforced? I wonder how many commuters are blowing off the festivities simply because they choose to ride without the magic foam hat? I was pretty disappointed to see this added over last year, especially since there are no real liability issues involved. Promotion of bike helmets is one thing, but people shouldn't be excluded for choosing not to wear one.

I went to Crave's yesterday. It was very low-key: a couple of balloons on their sign with a small 8x12 poster on their door. While I was inside, I saw a few cyclist ride past without stopping. Tomorrow, I'll go to Roadrunner's. The canopies are a good draw!
