Bike to Work Day in Phoenix

Have cruisers will bike! 
By the time I arrived at Park Central at 7 a.m. for the Bike to Work parade to downtown, a large gather of bicyclists had already arrived.  Lead by Mayor Stanton and his bike and motorcycle escorts from Phoenix PD, this years ride had over 250 participants registered and more attended on top of that. 

With bike equipped with lighting, multiple locks, baskets and crates, most of the cyclists I saw looked like already committed bicyclists ready to demonstrate bike commuting fun and ease.
Approximately 150 more people signed up than had done so one year ago.  Pretty impressive and indicative of the increased interest among Phoenicians for transportation cycling.
The ride definitely had stylin' bikes on display.
Love the basket!

Opa, a fellow Brompton owner who I met up with along the route. 
The ride down 5th Street, an already bike friendly one-way street with a good bike lane for most of the route, covered approximately two miles.

City bike coordinator Joe Perez (white shirt) is having a Joe Perez day.
We congregated afterward at the front porch of City Hall to enjoy coffee, bagels and egg wraps.  Mayor, Councilmembers and city staff spoke about the city's commitment to making Phoenix a world class city for cycling.

The people who helped make it all happen.
