Rainy Day Commuting 2 years ago
Rainy Day Commuting 2 years ago
Don't let these rainy and gloomy days keep you from commuting on your bike! Here are a few tips: Don't forget that in Louisville you're legally required to have a steady front light, and a steady or flashing red rear light. Of course that's probably always a good idea. A reflective vest or rain jacket is another appropriate addition. In addition to a rain jacket, a hat will help to keep water from dripping into your eyes. Fenders on your bike will keep the nasty water on the street from splashing up on your and your bike. Rain=clean, road water=bike trouble. You'll save yourself $ and a headache if you keep your bike protected. Not to mention you won't have an attractive wet streak running up your back. Finally, don't be a hero: if there's lightning or unsafe conditions, load your bike up on the nearest TARC bike and flash that UofL ID for a free ride!

Great ride to campus last Thursday, April 17th! Our monthly group bike commute rode from Iroquois Park to Belknap campus, following low-traffic bike routes almost the whole way! The sun was shining, and the cool temperatures were perfect for a ride to work. Next month our group bike commute will take place on May 30th, and coincides with Louisville's Bike to Work Day! Check out our bike initiative page (http://louisville.edu/hr/gethealthynow/wo/bikinginitiatives.html) for more information!
