Spokes folks

The yellow jackets were out in force today, Bloggee. The co-founder of the Bike 2 Work Day event in Carbondale, Tom Riechman in the red listens to wife Mary Avery, Sheila Simon, and Stace England discuss the need for more bicycle lanes on city streets.

England won the trophy for long-distance ride to work, while the trophy for the organization with the most people bicyling to work went to the SIUC Microbiology Department for the second year in a row, inspired by Donna Mueller.

(Stace has a killer website of his own for his world famous music projects. He told me that the New York Times interviewed him this week for a story about Cairo in Sunday's edition.)

More details and a group photo are posted at the Bike 2 Work blog.

Inspired by my conversation with these local cycling luminaries, after snapping this photo, I obtained a domain name for the cause.
