LA County is Having a ‘Bike to Work Day’ This Thursday

In the immortal words of Freddie Mercury:

Bicycle bicycle bicycle
I want to ride my bicycle bicycle bicycle
I want to ride my bicycle
I want to ride my bike
I want to ride my bicycle
I want to ride it… work?

That last line may not have actually happened but you can join thousands of other bike commuters around Los Angeles County and ride to work on two wheels as part of LA County’s Bike to Work Day, happening this Thursday, May 19.
