Everyday on a Bike // Week 1

The weather in Denver has been spectacular - the perfect get-on-your-bike-before-it-snows-again kind of weather. Although my bike rides never topped 2 miles, I was able to ride 5 out of 7 days this week. Not bad. And, on the days I missed out, others contributed their pictures (including Bobbie of Run.Bobbie.Run who rode in Iowa in sub-freezing temps!).

What's fascinating to me about these photos and this project is how close I stay to home - because I can. We picked the perfect walkable/bikeable community for a reason!

For example, on various days, I rode to the dentist and dry cleaners, to pick Lila up from daycare, to taste wine at our local wine purveyor and to lunch with the family.

Don't forget, if you post a photo on Instagram with the tag #everydayonabike this month, you'll be entered to win a $10 Starbucks gift card. For an additional entry, leave a comment on this post about why you ride in the winter. Check out the great photos from the week. You can find me on Instagram @sarastruckman.

Thanks for the shout out, Sara! I figure biking is quicker than walking, and therefore warmer in the cold weather :)

I'm so impressed that you ride in Iowa in the winter! Denver is easy - tomorrow is going to be in the 50s, which makes it so ridiculously easy to be motivated.
