It was a great week of cycling, and a trend that we hope to see continue - not such a big deal to set aside a little more time to get there, right? And the positive spin offs are the best - exercise, time to think (or not think), clean air, easy parking. While we hope you keep it up while the season permits, we also hope to keep growing our local Bike to Work and School Week initiative. Any thing you thought of that could have made it better or more accessible to you? Give us a shout at airqualityscoutisland@shaw.ca with your ideas.

The last couple days of Bike to Work and School with are the best. No pressure to get somewhere on time (unless, of course, you work on the weekend, in which case, hurry up) but if there's a chance to swap your car out for your bike, why not take it? Bike to the lake, bike to that BBQ, bike around in circles. Just bike - when you can, wherever you can. And don't let the end of Bike to Work and School Week stop you - keep riding.

Friday already. Now that you've got the commute dialed, do you think you can keep at it? Maybe not every day, but working your bicycle into your routine, beyond this week, could be a good habit. Good for you, good for the air.
