April means 30 Days of Biking

By : Jen · March 29, 2012

It's that time of year again. April is coming, and that means it's time for 30 Days of Biking!30 days of biking. Ride every day. For 30 days.

I'll just repeat most of what I said last year:

There’s a fun event coming up that originated in the Twin Cities but has now gone global. April has 30 days, so clearly it’s time for 30 Days of Biking.

The premise is simple. From their website,

The only rule for 30 Days of Biking is that you bike every day for 30 days–around the block, 20 miles to work, whatever suits you–then share your adventures online.

Keep up with them on Twitter or spread the word your own way. I did this last September [September 2010] and it was a good motivation to get on my bike, even on the reluctant days when I just rode around the block. Once I was out on my bike, “around the block” didn’t quite multiply into “multi-mile ride,” but it did often become a trip around three or four blocks. So there. I don’t tweet (although I enjoy reading Feminist Hulk’s Twitter) and I won’t put you through daily blog updates, but I will be riding along and I’ll go on a group ride with anyone interested (not limited to “Super Official Scheduled Rides,” picnics optional).

Register here and check out the events page. WFT-friendly Queer Bike Gang (the organizers of Cirque du So Gay) will be sponsoring the Short Shorts Ride to ARTCRANK on April 14. Or maybe something else spins your wheels. Whatever it is, just ride!

Short Shorts Ride
Saturday, April 14 @ 5:00 P.M.
Minneapolis, TBD

Who wears short shorts? YOU. And even if you didn't before, now you have a reason. QBG & 30 Days wanna see your ass in shorts. Short shorts. The shortest shorts possible. Make that the most tightest and brightest shorts as well. We want to see a parade of colorful canopies on your butt cheeks throughout the streets of the Twins. This slow-paced ride will end at ARTCRANK!
