National Bike to Work Day – in all other areas of the country – is May 15. As you all know, Jackson Hole spring weather isn’t always conducive to a community bike ride, especially when it’s 30 degrees and raining. Which is why, TODAY, JUNE 1 is Jackson Hole’s Bike to Work Day. And what a beautiful day for it! It feels like our summer has finally begun, after it rained for most of May.
A quick stop at either of the 2 bike stations at Pearl Street Bagels(town and Wilson) get you a free tune-up, courtesy of Hoback Sports in Jackson. And, if you’re biking, you get $3 in bagel bucks and a free cup of coffee – you can’t beat that deal!

Community wide, bikers are encouraged to use alternative means of transportation to get to work. Biking, walking, riding the bus, and carpooling are great ways of accomplishing this. As a kick-off to the summer commuting season, today starts the Commuter Choice Challenge – a Friends of Pathways sponsored summer-season event. Simply create an account here and start logging your miles! Join an existing workplace team or create a new one. It’s a great way to track your personal mileage, as well as compete with other teams in the valley.
