Edison Welding Institute is a partner of 2 BY 2012

EWI Wheelers was organized to participate in Bike to Work Week. A total of five riders participated the first year. With double the participation, we could have won our division that year. We more than doubled participation to 17 riders the next year and won.

Perhaps more impressive than our performance in the Bike to Work Challenge was what happened afterwards. The average number of bicycle commuters jumped to about eight per day. Once people tried this, many discovered that they actually enjoyed it and continued to ride to work several days per month.

EWI received a Bicycle Friendly Business Silver Award from the League of American Bicyclists in 2012.

Yesterday
Chilly, but sunny! Skipped the office Christmas party to have a quiet lunch with my wife!  5 mile errand
  5 mile commute
Cloudy, 23F, and a few snow flurries. Still, I am surprised to see other bike commuters out. It's growing!  5 mile commute
Wednesday • 2 days ago
Surprisingly, still seeing bike commuters out on the roadways. Goggles and face coverings seem to be the order of the day! (not me!)  5 mile errand
17F is not bad without the winds from yesterday. Roads mostly clear, but the alley behind half-price books? Yeow!  5 mile commute

At 27F, it shouldn't feel this cold. But riding into 30 MPH gusts of 27F wind.... Lobster mitts for me.....  5 mile errand
OK, snow with high winds out of the northwest. Still, the roads were not icy, so just took care to stay off the busier streets.  5 mile commute
Monday • 4 days ago
Lunch run, 35F but very damp. Not bad when the wind is at your back, but the other direction.... Brrrrr.....  5 mile errand
After dealing with the wind, cold, and SNOW on Saturday, the ride this morning seemed down right pleasant!  5 mile commute

Upper 20's is a lot better than upper teens! Streets are chemically striped waiting for the big (<1") snow tomorrow.  5 mile commute
  5 mile commute
OK, 19F... That means LOBSTER MITTS! Other than avoiding the ice patches on my fixie, not an unpleasant commute.  5 mile commute
Thursday, Dec 7 • 8 days ago
Flurries in the morning, colder and windier in the evening  5 mile commute
Winds blowing pretty good, and at 30F have quite a bite. Balaclava for me! but hey, turned over 2900 miles!  5 mile errand
OK, maybe just some random snowflakes... Still, not overly cold, so it was not an unpleasant commute.....  5 mile commute
Wednesday, Dec 6 • 9 days ago
Well, the good news is that the temperatures have risen to about 40F. The bad news is the winds have come up along with it.  5 mile errand
Getting colder..... But hey, on the ride in I found the glove I lost yesterday!  5 mile commute

Quick run home for lunch. Lost one of my light gloves today... I guess it is good the weather is turning colder ?!  5 mile errand
Clearly going to need better tires for riding in bad weather. Second time I have skidded it in Godzilla's brief 400 mile history!  5 mile commute
Very wet streets, but the rain had stopped before I left.  5 mile commute
