Members of the Edmonds Bicycle Advocacy Group were up bright and early Friday morning to greet bicycle commuters during the annual Bike to Work Day event. On their way to work via ferry, Sounder commuter train or city streets, the cyclists stopped by the group’s table outside the Copper Pot Indian Bar & Grill, where they signed up for raffle prizes, enjoyed fresh scones from Edmonds PCC and coffee from the Downtown Edmonds Starbucks, before heading on their way.

Bicycle group chairwoman Jan Niemi said that many people use Bike to Work Day as a way to “test the waters” before deciding whether they can commute by bicycle on a regular basis, and she offered some helpful tips on video here:

  1. Teresa,
    Thanks for coming so early Friday morning to see us greeting the bike commuters. Since stepping forward to get this annual support station started, I have been pleased with all the assistance, and the ability to hand over the preparations to Jan Niemi.

    Take care,

    Janice Corbett
