Day 32, Week 5- iBike Fresno

Its about time iWrite about iBike Fresno. I think I’ve been held up by the fact that iHaventBiked at all, and I’ve felt a tiny bit guilty for it, but the truth is, I am so jealous of people who bike everywhere and iWant that lifestyle.

I became a fan of their facebook in January and despite the fact that I hadn’t been on a bike since 6th grade I’ve pulled out this bike I found with a FREE-TAKE ME sign and begun to assess the work to be done to take me from I wanna, to I will, to iBike.

The whole idea behind the site and the movement is that Fresno is a great place to pedal it up, and it is becoming better with the Bike Master Plan that will make this a much more bicycle-friendly city.

So grab your bike and get out there, enjoy Fresno in a family-fun, eco-friendly, Fresnamzing way. I know that as soon as I can stop wobbling on mine, I will be! 2010 is going to be the year I stop making excuses and start riding!

    Thanks! It needs a lot of love, the chain is rusty, brakes are kind of spotty… but it was free and its totally cute so I can't complain! One of these days I'll be taking Fresno by storm on my unstoppable bike of glory! But I think I need handlebar tassels first.

    Sustainable Action which is an eco friendly club at FCC does free bike workshops and tune-ups 9-12 am M-Th for the rest of the semester for any of those who needs to dust off and get their bike in gear for the nice weather!
