Spaghetti Bolognese

If your office has good bicycle access, but you still don’t have a lot of folks taking two wheels to work, it might be time to consider setting up bikepools.  A lot of people are interested in biking to work but don’t know how to get started, what route to take and how to be safe while riding in.  Bikepools are a great way to get those riders out there and to help them learn from experienced bike commuters in their area.  By pairing up new riders with experienced ones and setting a challenge to all those willing to give it a try, you just might add to the growing community of bike commuters at your office and in your community.
