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.

The problem with commuting through the neighborhood streets of UA is that cars keep backing out in front of you! Yelling is good.....  5 mile commute

Well, it seems that Indian Summer (is that term now non-PC?) is winding down. 40F ride, gloves, sweater, jacket, and skull cap...  5 mile commute

Well, the winds are still blowing (~20 MPH) At least the skies have cleared. Heading home to watch the election results.  5 mile errand
Wind with the streets covered in wet leaves. What do you expect for a commute in November? At least the temps are in the 50s.  5 mile commute

Lunch run. Temps in the 50's. Left the sweater and took only the cycling jacket on the way back to work.  5 mile errand
Crisp but pleasant morning. Came in a little late, so managed to miss most of the traffic. It helps to make the ride pleasant.  5 mile commute

Too much rain to get in any miles over the weekend, so back to the weekday grind. Post rain with lots of debris on the streets.  5 mile commute

Lunch run. It clouded up, so the dampness with the mid 40's temps certainly can drive a chill. Still, with the right gear, pleasant.  5 mile errand
