    Biking to work on weekdays and for errands on the weekends is a habit for me - I do it without encouragement of any "challenge".  It will be a great time when people ride because it's the right and good thing to do.

    Riding wakes me up before arriving at work. I do not pick up colds from public transit and I do not worry about messy traffic on my way - even with the bike lanes fully utilized, there are never traffic jams
