KC Spokes People is Back!

kckriverIt’s official, Kansas City…it’s summer and if you’re not riding your bike you’re making a huge mistake! Summer is a great time to start bike commuting (sure you’ll get a bit sweaty, but it’s nothing a few baby wipes and a change of clothes can’t fix). We’re re-launching the Spokes People blog with two new bloggers who have lots of great ideas to offer, including employing parks and recreational trails on your bicycle commute, riding with groups, and how to be a bike mentor.

Also, be sure to pick up the July issue of Greenability Magazine. There’s an article I wrote about being a car-free cyclist in Kansas City and how it’s not as hard as you might think!

Stay tuned in the coming weeks for some awesome new posts! If you have any questions about bicycle commuting you would like one of the KC Spokes People bloggers to answer please shoot an email to rachel.krause@bikewalkkc.org.

Also, be sure to stop at BikeWalkKC’s June Handlebar Happy Hour and ride at the Salty Iguana on Thursday, June 26th and meet other local cyclists!

 

Happy trails!
