Well, tomorrow is the big day, Bike to Work Day is finally upon us.  I’ll be riding with a special guest to her job tomorrow and reporting on her experience biking to work.  This guest is not a usual bike commuter.  To help us round out our coverage, I need your help.  While riding to work tomorrow, take pictures, video, or take note of special stories as you complete your commute.  Send them to me at damien@streetsblog.org or leave links in the comments section below.  As the day goes on I’ll update our Bike to Work Day events page with your stories, pictures and other media.

To quote a friend of ours, I’ll see you on the streets.
