Well, perhaps that's not the greatest title in the world. After all, the concept of the commute is getting to and from your job each day. And naturally, not everyone has a Monday-Friday 8:00-5:00 job, so many of you are still commuting to work.
But I'm curious how many of you are using your bikes to get around town on the weekend. And that doesn't include training rides, charity rides, or things like that - not that those aren't perfectly valid. But as you know, this blog is about bikes as transportation, not recreation. I want to know how you're using your bike to get from place to place.
So what do you use your bike for on weekends? Do you use it to get to church? Do you take it out for nights on the town? Do you pack up a trailer and get your family to the park to see the kids play soccer? Do you use it to visit friends? Do you go shopping?
I'll bet that there are lots of folks out there who get into a mental rut where their bikes are just for their commute, but they don't use them for other perfectly valid and do-able errands and trips. So maybe if we all start sharing how we use our bikes for non-commuting trips, it'll spark some ideas in other folks about how they can use them too!
And, with this being Bike Month and some beautiful weather, there's no better time to be sparking these ideas...
So share in the comments! How do you use your bike on weekends?
People, not speed.
