Bike to Work Week - Overland Park, Kansas 2013

Bike to Work Week in Overland Park is off to the best start I've seen since 2007. I thought the job Brian and Nico did last year was stellar. This years has topped it already. Nice job guys.

 I met up with my buddy Noah on Monday morning. We've been meeting each other at these events since 2007 or 2008. It's always good to catch up and see some of his new gear.
 Noah and I both noticed Monday morning that the list of names on the check-in sheet were already at the point where they were around Wednesday last year. This is thanks, in large part, to several riders who work at Garmin. In talking with them I found out that they'd recently had a bike commuter challenge that ran from November through March. They logged almost 9000 miles. These guys are really committed to bike commuting!
So thanks again to Brian (far left) and Nico (blue shirt) for the free breakfast and all the swag. Here's hoping the weather cooperates the next few days. Also, I'm hoping to get the annual picture with Noah and Mark in on Friday morning.
