A Classic Sesame Street Bike Song

Bike to Work Day got off to an early start this morning when preparing for the morning trip, Sesame Street seemed in on the day.  Just about every segment was bike related.  I wanted to post a little of it for you, but it’s not online yet.  Instead, I found this classic "Ride a Bike!" film that’s above.

After the jump you can read about "Damien and Sammy’s Bike to Work" six mile round trip.  And bookmark this link for more Bike to Work Day pictures from around L.A. County as they come in!

Santa Monica

El Monte

Alice Strong reports:

El Monte provided fresh fruit, water, new metro maps, Clif bars,
patch kits, goodie bags and free tune-ups courtesy of RB Bicycles for
all the commuting cyclists on Bike to Work Day. Lino of RB estimated
about fifteen riders took advantage of the tune ups. I jumped at the
chance for a free lube and adjust on my Raleigh.
