Wintry Ride to Work Day

This Friday's commute will have a slight twist to it.  Instead of riding past 104 Street on my way to work, I'll hang a right and pedal the short distance to the Earth's General Store where I can get free coffee and blueberry pancakes just for riding my bike.

 The list of cyclists on Facebook who say they will attend are almost all year 'round cyclists.  One is a courier and three are cycling activists.  Another has a Bicycle Traffic Report on a campus radio station.  The owner and host of the breakfast moved his entire store 13 blocks to a new location using only bicycle transportation!

I'm supposed to be at work by 8 am which is the same time that City Councillor Scott McKeen is scheduled to read a proclamation to all those assembled.  I figure if I bring a DLSR to the breakfast, I might be able to film some of the event and thereby have my (pan) cake and eat it too!
