Bike to Work Week May 11-15, 2009

Around the El Segundo employment center:
Tuesday, May 12: 10th Annual Bike To Work Challenge with other El Segundo employers (Boeing, DirecTV, Equity Office / Howard Hughes Center, Los Angeles Air Force Base, Los Angeles World Airports, Northrop Grumman, Playa Vista, and Raytheon)

The Aerospace Employees Association (AEA) Cycling/Bike Commuter Club and Aerospace Commuter Services are sponsoring a challenge to see who can bring in the most bicycle commuters. All cyclists who ride their bikes to work that day, regardless of starting point or whether they rode with the group, will receive a continental breakfast, a T-shirt, and promotional items.

Cyclists arriving to work should go to The Aerospace Corporation's Visitor Lot/Gate C (located on Douglas Street), turn left before the security guard shack, and sign in anytime between 6 a.m. and 10 a.m. to receive your cycling rewards.

In addition, Los Angeles World Airports is holding a Westside Welcome Station/Pit Stop at World Way West for all Bike to Work Challenge participants riding in from the Westside. Beach cities riders can make a pit stop and join others continuing the ride to the Aerospace Welcome Station.
From MTA:
The 15th annual Bike to Work Day is coming on Thursday, May 14, 2009. We expect a record number of participants to enjoy a relaxing, healthy, green bicycle ride to work.

Pledge Online… and, be entered to win fabulous prizes, including an electric bike from Currie Technologies!
Aerospace will be co-hosting a Pit-Stop at the El Segundo/Nash Green Line Station on Thursday, May 14 from 6 a.m to 9:30 a.m. in honor of the 15th annual Bike to Work Day. All cyclists are invited to stop by for refreshments and free giveaways!
Once again, I did not make elastic pant leg protectors for riders. Nor did I post a tutorial showing how to make your own custom-sized elastic and velcro pant leg protectors. Sigh. Maybe next time.

Go get your bike ready and join me tomorrow. If you ride in and catch me at the breakfast station, give me your postal address and I will send you an elastic pant leg protector when I finally get around to sewing them.
