October is Rideshare Month

Rideshare has plenty of reasons for you not to drive solo on your commute, throughout the entire month you can be rewarded by choosing a new option! Every week they are giving away $100 prizes to people for logging their commutes, and more prizes each day.

Transit Tuesdays. Carpool Wednesdays. Vanpool Thursdays. Bike Fridays… there’s something for everyone! Bike Fridays are complete with bike breakfasts and bike happy hours, and other perks for riding your bike throughout the month. We are hosting a free mini Bike Ed workshop on October 11th from 6:00 – 7:00pm at the Coalition HQ, to help people feel confident riding their bike on their commute.

Rossignoli’s Vintage Bicycle Exhibition

Located in a courtyard in Milan, this show was a side show to the 2010 Milan Design Week. All these bikes are “found” 19th century gems.
