Bike-to-Work Day a Success!

Chapel Hill- Carrboro’s Bike-to-Work Day celebration was a success, with more than 100 people attending the breakfast in the parking lot across from Armadillo Grill.  Cyclists enjoyed biscuits from Neal’s Deli, coffee from Open Eye Cafe, and other delicious treats.

The cyclists signed up for the Smart Commute Challenge by pledging to use alternative transportation at least once to get to work/school.

Mechanics from The Clean Machine and the ReCYCLEry pumped tires, lubed chains and tested brakes for the commuters.  Attendees were entered to win raffle prizes, including bike lights, T-shirts, coffee, Bulls tickets, Cycle9 gift cards, and Burt’s Bees products.
