Today was the Staples, Framingham Bike to Work Day. Employees of Staples were given various incentives to ride to work on this gorgeous 80° morning. One of these incentives was free bike check-ups courtesy of IBC.
These events are great, you've got everyone from serious triathlete-types on their TT bikes to folks that have pulled their dusty, fifteen-year-old klunkers out of the basement. For some, riding to work is business as usual; for others it's a major feat.
It is truly amazing how far people will ride with a little motivation. We had riders coming in from as far away as Walpole, a 24 mile trip. Word on the street was that Staples has one employee who rides in from Plymouth once in a while, a 75 mile journey. He may have still been riding by the time we had to pack up to leave.
