John Schlatter lives near Firdale Village and regularly commutes by bicycle to his job in Mukilteo, a 10.7 mile ride. "I'm committed to riding my bike to work every day in May," he said. "I keep it up in winter, but often have to cut back to 2-3 days per week depending on weather."

Leif Bjorback shows off his Bike to Work Day socks from last year.  Leif works for the City of Edmonds and lives in Lynnwood. "It's only a 4-mile commute, and it's downhill all the way in the morning," he said.  He's been a regular Bike to Work participant since the event's inception in 2009. "I've already worn through my first pair of commemorative socks," he laughed.
